Birthday Card for a Sweet Boy

Long time no post!  I've been so busy lately that I haven't had time to share what I've been working on.  However, today I had to make the time.  You may have seen the news story about the little boy battling brain cancer who wished for cards for his birthday.  If not, here's a link:  His birthday is coming up at the end of the week so if you can get a card out in the mail to him, that would be awesome!

A little while ago I cut out these cute caterpillars from the Cricut Stretch Your Imagination cartridge.  I wasn't sure what I would use them for but they were so adorable I just had to use the cut.  As soon as I saw this news story I knew exactly what I wanted to make.  Normally I struggle with design and spend more time figuring out what I want to do than actually making it happen.  Not so with this special card!  I think this was the fastest I have ever come up with an idea and made it happen.  Must have been meant to be!

Paper:  DCWV Year Round Stack and Close To My Heart Daisy White
Ink:  Close to My Heart Cranberry
Stamps:  Cricut Artiste Collection Birthday (Close to My Heart Cartridge) for the birthday banner and Close to My Heart With Toppings Petite Perks for the ice cream cone (colored with Shinhan Touch Twin Alcohol Markers in mahogany, clay, and tender pink.)
