Paislee Birthday Card

I know this is not a new cartridge, but I find myself wanting to use the cuts from different carts for cards just to "try them out". The image of this zebra was one of the reasons I wanted this cart, and yet, I hadn't used it yet! Go figure! So I decided it was time to use it and here it found it's way onto a birthday card. I also used the balloons from another cart and welded them to the image. This made it easier to glue the "colored" balloons down to an already existing template. To add a pop of color, I used glossy accents on the balloons & the center of the wheels. I just happened to find a ribbon in my stash that worked for me, and the traffic light is a sticker. TFL!
I used the cuttlebug to dry-emboss the background paper.

The sentiment was a stamp.

A closer look of the now-dimensional balloons.

Thank  you for joining me!
Today I was inspired to create a Dream catcher with existing shapes using my Cricut Explore Air 2. This was brought about after a Facebook post that got me thinking..."I can do that!"
