Scrappy Moms Stamps...1st Ever Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Birthday Bash!

On Tuesday, I came across this website, Scrappy Moms Stamps, and thought I would try the challenge. Use Birthday Bash or a similar cut. (Click here to read more about it). I don't own Birthday Bash, so I used an image from Cricut Cartridge Simply Charmed.

It's a gate-fold card...

 and the inside...

Finished card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: Green, Yellow, Red, Light Purple and Patterned Paper.
Cricut Cartridge Simply Charmed Birthday Cake page 74 (Base, Layer 1, Layer 2, Layer 3, Layer 4, Word and Shift Word)
Cricut Design Studio
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder D'vine Swirls
Mrs Grossman's Clear Stickers Balloons
Sentiment is Computer Printed
3D-Dots (Cake and Sentiment)

I thought I would try a gate-fold card in the other direction from what I usually make. Basically, because I wanted the "Happy Birthday" to be large and it just fit better this way.

I'm not sure why, but birthday cards are difficult for me to make. I think because there are so many directions you can go... feminine, lacy, flowery, cute, funny, etc. I always have trouble narrowing it down (unless I have someone specific in mind). I enjoyed this challenge...the first thing I did was ask my son, "What is the first thing you think of when I say 'birthday'?" "Cake," was his immediate response. My oldest said the same thing (lol). So that's how this card came about.
