Carnival Birthday Card!

Happy Sunday, everyone!! I hope you are having a great weekend!! I want to sincerely thank everyone for their concern during the storms on Friday, especially those awesome friends who emailed me, messaged me and left comments. I can't tell you how much it meant to me...I am so thankful for every one of you!! The storms hit about an hour SE of here...we had strong winds, driving rain and the skies were a scary black, but thankfully no damage. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the terrible storms.


I have a card to enter into a couple of challenges today. The blue background paper is Core'dinations, and I embossed it with the Traffic Jam folder. All of the patterned paper is from DCWV Citrus Stack.


The carousel is from Summer Vacation. I cut it twice, once in black for the shadow effect.


The roller coaster is also from Summer Vacation. The balloons are from Birthday Cakes. "Happy" is from K Andrew Designs Fall-O-Ween stamp set, and "Birthday" is from Coffee & Tea For You & Me:

I am linking this up with the following challenges:
  1. Cooking With Cricut #75 - Carnival or Carnival Birthday
  2. Whimsical Wednesday #44 - Sketch Challenge:

I have several people for the Green Blend award but I didn't get the chance to put it together yet, so I will do so in the next few days. Also, I have so much to do this weekend, I haven't had the chance to stop and visit you...I will do so very soon!! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day :)

I'm glad to hear you're doing okay after the storms Lisa. I'm with you in the prayers to those who were involved. It looked pretty bad from the new clips.

On a lighter note, the card is so fun! The embossing folder goes so perfect with this! That's a tough one to use, it really requires a certain theme to use it. Makes me wish summer was here already!

Shelly said...

OH my goodness...THIS IS AWESOME!!! I love the colors and theme. It is such an AWESOME birthday card! That paper is from my favorite DCWV stack, so much so... that I never use it in fear I'll run out! That's so weird huh?
Well, I'm so happy that you were not affected by the tornado and we will be praying for those that were.
Have a terrific night!
Shelly

Pam said...

Lisa I am so grateful to hear you and yours are all OK! My prayers are still with so many others.

This is a really cute card. You nailed the sketch! I would love to know your cricut settings on some of these hard cuts too. My expression really gives me fits sometimes.

So happy you are alright,
Hugs, Pam

Karen said...

Allow me to just sit and marvel at yet another genius creation by you. :o) I don't really think a birthday card can be any more fun than this one, my friend! :o) The cuts are fabulous and I love that you gave them shadow effects. The papers are so vibrant and chipper, which is perfect. Speaking of which, I love that you used four different patterns for the little banners. And look at all the sparkle! Beautiful work as always, Lisa. You made me yearn for Cedar Point. :o) I'm glad you and your loved ones are okay. :o) Thank you for the smile!

Hugs and blessings!
