Birthday Numbers - Tuesday Trigger

The other day I decided that I would start using more of the shapes on the Art Philosphy cartridge. I envisioned a square card with the jumbled numbers shape. I pulled a piece of my Creme Brulee' cardstock and cut out a 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 shape of jumbled numbers. I had intended to add this to a 6x6 Kraft card but this is where I got stuck. I sat there looking at the numbers on the Kraft card.  I liked it but wasn't sure what to do with it.  Finally, I set it aside and decided to come back to it another day.

Well today was the day! I was getting up to date on the blogs I follow and came across the Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World. It was just enough 'trigger' to get my mind going.   NUMBERS!! I was already a step in the right direction. The colors in this quilt and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches helped me finish the card.

I decided to exchange the Kraft card for a White 6x6 card. Then the card started to come together quickly.   I used the Party Pennant stamp (C1429) to stamp the presents in Lagoon, Dutch Blue and Tulip.  Happy Birthday is stamped in Desert Sand.  Each present has a similar color sparkle. The Sparkles come in Blue & Green Assortment (Z1327) and Red, Pink & Purple Assortment (Z1326).  Oh and that big wide ribbon!  I love this ribbon and really need to get some more before January 31!  This Sweet Leaf Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon (Z1383) will retire at the end of the month!  This Art Philosophy Cartridge (Z1686) is addicting!  My cricut has been buzzing like crazy ever since I got it!

Here is the sketch from Freshly Make Sketches I used.  I love their sketches! Be sure to visit their blog!
