Happy Bday / Cricut Imagine

I am playing with my Cricut Imagine; trying to figure out the features and I have to say I'm learning.  I needed a quick bday card and I was able to put this card together rather quickly.  I also wanted to participate in this week challenge over My Pink Stamper.  We were to use our Cricut Imagine and our regular tools and bling to create something. 

This is what I came up with:

Took some DCWV pink texture paper and and this reddish pattern shimmer paper for contrast.  I then used the Cricut Imagine Best Friends cartridge the yellow pattern scallop rectangle, the balloons, the birdie, the blue sky with clouds --- all in one sheet of paper and in one pass.  I have to admit that was impressive.  I cut the red balloon using the cut only function to use the shimmer red paper; then I used foam to pop out the red balloon, the clouds and the birdie.  The sentiment is from a cuttlebug die and I finished it off with some red/white twine.  Really like how this card turned out.  Still need to play some more, but so far it has been FUN.

Thanks for stopping by, happy crafting!
