Simply Charmed Chickie

Hi Guys! I'm here with a card i made for my cousin Heather's 18th Birthday. I used the Simply Charmed cart for the chickie, the hat and the balloon. i used the Fiskars cupcake border punch at the bottom and tried my hand at ruffling ribbon...I so need more practice at this! I put a brad in the middle of the ribbon, i had used the Tim Holtz Tiny Attatcher and it was too short through the middle and you could really see the staples. I also used the Polka Dots Cuttlebug folder for the background. I drew the string on the paper before I had cut the final balloon & would have liked that part better if I would have waited! :o( oh well.
I printed out the sentiment and used a 1.5 in. scallop circle punch for the white and a 2 inch scallop punch for the yellow. I used a white with blue dot ribbon at the bottom too just too get a little more blue in it. I'm not 100% happy with this card ~ but I think the chickie herself is rather cute! Thanks for taking the time to stop by & check it out!
Happy 18th Birthday Heather!! I still cant get over how time just flies by! :o)

Super cute card, your cousin will love it. I like the color of the ribbon. I haven't tried using ribbon like that yet. I will have to give it a try. Time does fly.
