Surprise Birthday Card!

It's been a while, hasn't it?  Sorry, but I haven't been getting much craftiness done lately to share!  But when I saw the great colors for this week's Peachy Keen Photo Inspiration Challenge, I just KNEW I had to participate!!  I love these bright colors, and I'm in great need of kid-sy birthday cards.

Here's the photo inspiration:


And, here's my card:

I used Cricut's Crocs Rule and Cupcake lite cartridges.  I hid the crocodile's eyes and gave her new Peachy ones from their Teddy Bear and Reindeer Face Parts set.  The "Happy Birthday!" sentiment is from their PKSC-13 January 2013 release set.  I used a white pen to outline the crocodile and make it stand out, but it looks more like the icing from the cupcake stuck to her! Lol!

The background papers are from Echo Park's Everyday Eclectic by Allison Kreft.  Even though I have LOTS of patterned paper in my stash, when I saw this pack, I had to have it just for this colorful challenge!  (I'm totally addicted to patterned paper!)

Anyway, it feels good to get back into the crafty mood; maybe I'll have more to share with you soon.  If you are interested, check out Peachy Keen's latest challenge, here.
