Look Who's Turning 4-Wishing You A Birthday That Is OUT OF THIS WORLD

Good Morning Everyone! Happy July 1st...Can you believe we are already half way through the year...My gosh how this year has flown by...where does the time go while you're having fun? My grandson's birthday is in a couple weeks so I thought I'd better get busy and make him a card. I was inspired by Regina's number and letter shaped cards but she hasn't done the number 4 yet and has been so busy lately I didn't want to ask her to do it for me. I got my Cricut out of it's jammies (thank you Lillie!) and tried my luck. It turned out OK...all the pieces matched and lined up. The only problem I had was finding the right paper...his favorite color is yellow. It's tough to find something in yellow that doesn't look too girly or babyish. I know it doesn't look yellow in the picture but it is...it looks more orange but it's really a dark yellow. You can't tell by the picture but the paper on the inside is spaced themed, hence the sentiment on the tag! Although it wouldn't be my first choice, I'm OK with it---
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: Measures 4.5 x 5
Card Template: Cricut-Plantin Schoolbook
Nestibilities: Circle
Spellbinder: Tags 5
Cuttlebug: Birthday 2x2 Set
Sentiment: Computer Generated-2Pea Grandpa
Accessories: Ribbon, Brad, Craft Yarn, Foam Pop Dots
Base Cardstock-Bazzill
Patterned Paper: DCWV-All About Boys

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by, I hope to see you next time! Have a great day!
