First Terrific Tuesday with Scrappy Moms Challenge

Welcome Crafty Friends,

For the Cartridge Chaos Challenge Please click HERE

1st Ever Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Birthday Bash!
Welcome to out very 1st Terrific Tuesday Challenge! Scrappy Moms Stamps will be having 2 Cricut Cartridge based challenges a month - on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays. You will have until the following Monday to submit your entry.
All submitions will be entered into a monthly prize drawing - January's drawing will be for Scrappy Moms soon-to-be released Valentine's stamp set, Love Notes! It's so new they can't even show you a picture yet - it's still in spec at the manufacturer!

 This week's cartridge it Birthday Bash. If you don't have Birthday Bash you can use a similar cut from a different cartridge. We want everyone to play along and, hopefully, have a blast! To Enter into this challenge Please click HERE

This is such a wonderful challenge that Scrappy Moms is putting on! And Im really excited to see all the entries. Please play along with us and most importantly HAVE FUN!!

Now onto my card:


For my card I used the card base image found on page 33 of the Birthday Bash Cartridge.
The celebrate phrase is also found on page 33. Now there is a shadow feature for this phrase however it has the anteater above it. I just clipped him off.
The darling little squirell is found on page 61 of the booklet. And instead of him holding the number 1 like the booklet shows I just cut the number 2 from page 62. My son will be turning 2, Jan 29th. So this will be his birthday card.
Kraft Cardstock from Michaels, and all pattern paper is from My Minds Eye "Alpahbet Soup".
Colored cardstock and ribbon is from Michaels.
Stitching all over this card really made it pop. I call this the "NIKKI" effect. After glancing at my picture I realised that I missed the stitching between the e and the l. I quickly ran over and fixed my card :)
The Sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Simple Sentiments.

I look forward to seeing all the entries into this challenge. Thank You Melanie and Tammy for putting on such a great challenge.
