Birthday Bash card (for BBTB2)

Shape Up (make a shaped card) is the challenge my cool DT sister Jayne has put before us this week.  As Son#1 has an upcoming birthday, I decided to try out one of the many shape card options on the Birthday Bash cartridge and make his card.  This shaped card actually has the birthday bash sentiment as part of the card shape, along with the cute scalloped edge!  I added circles from Plaintain Schoolbook and used the Birthday Bash font to put the age on there too.  The inside happy birthday sentiment is also from Birthday Bash.

Plaintain Schoolbook-circles
Birthday Bash-all other cuts, card cut out at 5 1/4 in.
Paper-solids CTMH, print is from Basic Grey Life of the Party collection
brown chalk ink

This is a great design for a fast card-I cut and put the whole thing together in about 20 minutes!   (That does NOT include the 20 minutes I spent deciding WHICH of the shaped card options on Birthday Bash I wanted to cut out, lol!)  Go check out the huge variety of shaped cards at BBTB2 for ideas, and play along with with us!
