Happy Birthday at Die Cuttin' Divas

Hello Diva Fans,
Today I am sharing the new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas. I hope you will join us this week since this is a fun challenge! 

This Week's Challenge...

Here is my Design Team project...
Hubby asked me to make him a birthday card for his father. He even asked a few days ahead instead the day before! First, I had to think about the design since I wanted it to be masculine, so I decided on the colors blue and brown. Distressed embossing folder added a bit of texture to the solid card stock.

I used MFT stitched dies for the mats and a circle die to cut the window. Happy Birthday was cut with my Cricut Expression~ Birthday Bash cartridge. The stars were cut with my Cuttlebug ~ MFT Blueprints.

 Kraft color twine to match the sentiment and stars and Latte skittles by Carri to finish the bottom portion.

Make a birthday wish with all the stars!
Hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "Birthdaychallenge. The other design team members did a fantastic job sending birthday wishes. Be sure to check out the variety!

Thanks for stopping by!
