Bright Birthday Card

Here's the second of two cards that I made 14 of for an online Cricut Circle Canadian Members all occasion card swap (which was open to US residents as well):

I started with an A2 card base and scored and folded the front of the card in half.  I added and additional piece that started at about  five inches wide but scored and folded it to fit into the flap that was created by scoring the card base.   This second piece became the front of the card. 

 When you open the front, there is the second layer:

Finally, you open that and there is the inside of the card:

Supplies Used: 
Cricut Expression & Cricut CraftRoom Application
Cricut Beyond Birthdays  (“Happy Birthday”)
Cricut Celebrations Cartridge (balloons)
Cricut Walk in My Garden Cartridge (flower)
Martha Stewart Scoring Pad
Cuttlebug Moroccan Screen Embossing Folder 
Embroidery Floss (balloon strings)
Zig Opaque Writer (doodling on balloon and letters)
White Inkssentials Enamel Accents (flowers centres)
Studio G “Celebrate” Stamp
Craftsmart Embossing Pad 
Stampendous Embossing Powder (opaque white)
Zing Embossing Powder (neon pink)
Hampton Art “Fabulous” Stamp
Patterned Paper: Costco 
Solid Cardstock Recollections
Studio G chalk ink (shading on balloons)
Glue stick
Decorative accents (skittles)

I hope the card will be well received by the swap participants. I know neon pink and green are not everyone’s cup of tea, but what can I say - I’m grew up in the eighties.  Thanks for looking.
