Girlfriend Birthday Card

I love the Girlfriends stamp sets from Art Impressions and the one I used on this 5"X5" card is called "Out to Lunch":

I cut a circle out of  white cardstock, stamped the image on the circle and colored  the image with pencil crayons.  

The daisies on the lower left of the card were a pain to cut that small (1/2 inch), especially since each daisy is three layers of the same cut (Daisy2) from the Flower Shoppe Cartridge. It took twenty cuts to get the nine good pieces that I used for the three daisies.

The Happy Birthday sentiment is a piece of confetti to which I added some iridescent glitter to soften the color so that it was closer match to the ribbon I wove through the card base. 

Supplies Used:
Cricut Expression & Cricut CraftRoom Application
Cricut Wild Card Cartridge (Doily Card Base)
Cricut Flower Shoppe Cartridge (Daisies)
Cricut CraftRoom Basics Cartridge (Circles)
Art Impressions "Out to Lunch" Girlfriend Stamp
White and yellow cardstock  (scraps from my stash)
"Happy Birthday" Confetti
Celebrate It Ribbon
Hot Fix gems
VersaFine Black Ink Pad
Crayola Pencil Crayons
Iridescent glitter 
Inkadinkado Blending Chalks (soft tones)
Self-adhesive foam mounts

Thanks for looking.
