"Hippo Birdie to You!" Card

So I was at (my local) Michael's the other day, and I found these really cute stamp sets FOR $1.00! I was really drawn to this hippo because it's so cute, and I couldn't stop laughing at the "Happy Birthday" saying that came with it. I have never made a card without using my Cricut machine.. Enjoy!

Target $1 Rack

I went to my local Target store this past week and found some really pretty patterned paper, brads, and stamps for $1! I really recommend you guy checking out YOUR local Target. ANYWHO.. I'm posting a card I made for my best friends daughters birthday, coming up next week. Like any other little girl I know.. her favorite color is pink! (go figure, right? haha) I used the butterfly themed paper, from Target for my card. I used the Indie Art Cricut Cartridge for the butterfly, cut at 2", and the Wild Card Cricut Cartridge for the Happy Birthday, cut at 3". I added some ribbon & paper flowers (added a brad) that I've had for quite some time. Thanks for looking.. and I really appreciate comments.
