It's Your Day -- for The Cutting Cafe

This time, for The Cutting Cafe, we could use any file we wanted to.  Oh yeah!  The choices from the store are many and varied. Since I have several friends having birthdays in the very near future, I decided to make a birthday themed card. Even narrowing it down that far, there are many, many great choices in The Cutting Cafe for birthday cards. 

This balloon shaped card was quick to make and can be embellished many different ways. 
Here's a close up of the sentiment...

I also used Everyday Mini Words printable stamps from The Cutting Cafe for the tag, punching it out with a Creative Memories tag punch.
The ribbon on the tag is from 3 Girl JAM.  I used the Caribbean Splash Bundle.  Papers are My Mind's Eye, Alphabet Soup. Juniper & Kraft Cardstock are from Close To My Heart. There's Timeless Twine in Key Lime Sorbet.
Make sure to visit The Cutting Cafe Blog on June 21 to see the rest of the projects from this amazing design team! Leave a comment, and you could win 3 sets of your choice.  FUN!
