Cooking With Cricut #76 Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss/Read Across America




For the Cooking With Cricut Challenge #76 Dr. Seuss Birthday. You had to make a card etc. from one of your favorite Dr. Seuss books or another favorite book of yours. It's hard to choose just one favorite book of Dr. Seuss. I loved them all, but I always remember Hooper Humperdink...? Not Him! This book is about a Boy named Hooper Humperdink who wasn't invited to a Birthday Party. Everyone else was, but him :( :( Not to long ago my sister was going through our books from our childhood an we came across this one. It was one of my favorites to read. I think I loved all the birthday stuff in the book. It has a really great story. If you never read it, I do recommend reading it. So for my card I went with a Birthday theme.

I Used/Recipe:
DCWV PP- Birthday stack
Wausau CS
Bazzill CS
DCWV CS
Birthday Bash cart- pg.23 Layer 2/Balloon 2 1/4" & 2 1/2" -- pg. 32 Layer 1/Ice Cream Cone 4 1/2"-- pg. 25 Cake 3 3/4"
CTMH Ink- Sunny Yellow
Sharpie pen
White gel pen
I free hand the happy birthday
I also added dots around some of the bigger dots on the PP
SU Dimensionals
A2 card
