BBTB2 - Birthday Cards With Number/Age



Hello! and Welcome to another challenge hosted by Bitten By The Bug 2! This week we want to see all your cards/projects that feature a Birthday theme including numbers and/or the age.  I have created a fun little card for my nephew who is turning 6 at the end of the month.  I used the Birthday Bash cartridge, which is an AWESOME cartridge featuring cute animals holding numbers/ages.  I improvised a little bit with the shark, he is supposed to be holding a 5, but I stole the 6 from a different page and modified it to work with the shark.  So the shark is cut at 4", the 6 is cut at 2".   (Check out my Video to see how it all worked out).  I have the shark on an Action Wobble which makes it that much more fun!  The base card is even cut from Birthday Bash - another fabulous feature of this cart is the card/tag creative feature - some amazing options there!  The water paper comes from Colorbok paper I purchased at Wal-Mart.  I printed out the sentiment on my computer and used some We R Memory Keepers Baker's Twine to top the card off.  I hope you are able to join us this week over at BBTB2 for our Birthday/Age challenge!
I am also going to enter this card into the Fun Friday Linky Party over at Little Scrap Pieces and the Action Wobble Challenge of Unusual Pets - I think a shark would be an unusual pet, don't you?
Thanks for checkin' in!!!
