Time for a Birthday!

I can't believe this, but my baby is turning 35 on Saturday.  I have two sons and can't believe the time has flown by so fast.  I am so lucky to have wonderful sons who are great husbands and the best fathers in the world.  They make me proud everyday.  Just hard seeing them grow up, but they know they will always be my babies!!!  For this card I used my cartridges and was inspired by something I seen on Pinterest.  I admit that male cards do not come easy to me at all.  I stuggle with ideas and when I was drawing a blank went to Pinterest and this is a combination of several I liked.  I used the Cricut Explore and the cartridges Pretty Pennants, Nate's ABC's and Ribbons and Rossettes.  I used the embossing folders Chevron for the background from CTMH and on the pennant used the Star from Cuttlebug.  From Pretty Pennants, I cut the 3 pennants at sizes 2 x 4.5, 2 x 3.5, and 2 x 3.00.  The number 35 is from Nate's ABC's cut at 1.5 inches.  The star is from Ribbon and Rossettes cut at 2 and 2.5 inches.  I also used Outdoor Denim ink from CTMH.  I have been working on several projects this week, but can't show them yet because I am hosting a bridal luncheon for my soon to be sister in law.  Will share this soon.  Join me Monday for a challenge.....details coming!!!
