Happy Birthday to one Cool Chick!

My little sister's birthday is this week.  She is a fellow Cricut owner and scrapper, so I wanted to be sure to get a card made for her.  I didn't have a specific design in mind, but I was inspired by several challenge blogs.  Please forgive my worse-than-usual photography.  My husband is out of town with the camera and I had to use the camera on my laptop!

Front of the card:


The chick is from Create a Critter.  His sunglasses are from Everyday Paper Dolls.  I used my Gypsy to remove the cutting lines for the lenses and to make them the right size for the chick.  The turquoise square behind the chick was run through my Happy Birthday Cuttlebug folder.  The words "to one" inside the card were printed on my printer.  "Cool chick" was cut from the Opposites Attract cartridge.  I like the way this card turned out, particularly the chick!  I may use a similar idea in the future with a sentiment like "Have a Cool Easter!"

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
You Had me at Craft--Gotta Have Friends Blog Hop and Linking Party
Flaunt it Fridays challenge #17--3 Birds on Parade.  They say if you don't have that cart, you can use a similar one.  I was inspired by their Design Team member C.C., who used Create a Critter.
