I Feel the Love Big Bird Birthday Card

Hi!  Today I'm sharing a birthday card I made to send to Madison at Funky Cards for the I Feel the Love project. This month she is collecting birthday cards for a little boy named Ethan.  He was diagnosed with a rare liver disease called Biliary Atresia when he was 2 months old.  Thanks to a liver transplant and the wonderful care he got from the doctors, Ethan will be celebrating his 2nd birthday in November.  I decided to make a Big Bird birthday card for him.  I will also be entering this card into Challenge #31 over at Birthday Sundaes which is to make a tall or long birthday card.  Have a great day and thanks for looking!  :)

Materials Used:
  • Sesame Street Friends Cricut Cartridge (Big Bird)
  • Stretch Your Imagination Cricut Cartridge (Present)
  • Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge (Birthday Hat)
  • Just a Note Cricut Cartridge (Banner)
  • INKADINKADO Birthday Stamp
