Happy Birthday 6 {The Kraft Journal}

Good Monday to you! 

{Sale Alert at Bottom of POST}

Hard to believe November is almost over. Tomorrow we move into the last month of the year. Wow!  The holidays are moving in on me like a freight train. My plan is to stay nice and laid back this year. No big plans. I will be missing my family tremendously. 

This week we have a color challenge at The Kraft Journal. I do hope you join us! 

I started with a card base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock. I took some green graph designer paper and added it to the bottom of the card adding a trim of Orange Baker's Twine. In the upper left corner I die-cut a circle (Spellbinders) and trimmed the edges. I die-cut and layered a 6 (PTI) using Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and solid green designer paper. I formed a tiny double bow using more Orange Baker's Twine adding it to the bottom of the number.  Using my Cricut, I cut out a lion using the Create a Critter 2 Cartridge followed by paper piecing him, and embellished his party hat with some glitter before mounting with foam adhesive.
I stamped "Happy Birthday" (Paper Smooches) on orange cardstock that I cut into a banner adding to the lower left of the card. Last I added a few orange and green sequins for further embellishing. 

Here are the colors to use this week!
