Monday Challenge #58 - Birthday: What's your age?! My Craft Spot

I was surprised that the Monday Challenge for My Craft Spot this week was one that I could use this week for my granddaughter.  Somehow instead of one card I have to make four for that day.  One for my Mom , one for my Aunt (Great Great Aunt) and one for my Son (Uncle Dan) to give to Tay for her birthday this Saturday!!!  Can't believe she is Five Years old!!!  I used Hello Kitty Greetings and The Cricut Craft Room for the number and to do some welding for my card!!!!  There are tons of layers , some inking and bling and a bow to finish it off....

The finished size is 6x 5 1/2

I love doing shaped cards but the insides always stump me.  I was determined to not just put a stamp on the inside and call it done this time.  soooooo... TADA!!!!

More cutting and inking and layers but muted tones ... I did have to fussy cut kitty a little on the left side so it layered well...

Now in keeping with the Hello Kitty theme I made another Hello Kitty card that is also 6x5 1/2 and also a shaped card for one of the ladies to give.

Isn't she cute  ... she is gussied up and embossed and a little bow added  with a decorated envelop for her new home

Now I have to say this took some time but I really enjoyed making both of the cards and it really was great to be challenged to make something I usually don't do!!!

So pretty-love your shaped card with kitty! Love the pearls on the umbrella and pretty paper you used. Just wish I had an excuse to buy this one, but I have all boys who do not appreciate hello kitty!
