Happy happy birthday

In my never ending quest to justify to myself buying Cricut cartridges that seem to be limited in scope, I decided to sit down and go through Winter Frolic this week and, coincidentally, found this celebratory little bird that fit a couple of challenges that I was planning to enter!  I cut him in yellow to make him a chick.  He's got a festive little party hat made from patterned paper and a sparkly ball on top that I colored in with some Firefly stickles.  He looked like he was blowing out a candle, so I made a little cupcake from Doodlecharms and used some Tropical Tangerine Stickles on the flame.  

This ribbon was, I thought, a perfect addition based on the colors I had already used.  Surprisingly, I picked it up on a whim from the Target dollar spot when I was there a few weeks ago with my husband.  I'm sure glad I did!

I plan to enter this card in the following challenges:
Cooking with Cricut- Child's birthday
Creative Cutter Room- Chick or chicken
