For The Birthday Boy

I did things a little different this time. If you have been following me the past few days, you know that I've been challenging myself by picking a number that coordinates with one of my Cricut cartridges to use in a challenge. Well this time, Random Generator picked a number for me (my son was not around today to ask him) for my cartridge. I used Random Generator again and had the number coordinate with a page number for that cartridge. THEN I looked at the challenges that I have been considering. This is what I came up with: Celebrate The Occasion "Child's Birthday"and Die Cuttin' Diva's Blue, Silver and White.

My card:

and the inside:

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