A new twist to a Birthday banner




Just in time for a challenge and something I needed! LOL! My Creative time's challenge is to make something birthday themed with the Celebrations cartridge.
I scored a few weeks ago when I found this at Walmart on clearance for $23 !!!! I couldn't believe it was one I didn't have and it is soooo cute !!!

So you know how most people have birthday banners? Well I wanted to do something different. I have one wall in my house that you can see from the living, dining, kitchen and front door that is my Cricut wall! I change the scene often LOL!!
So this design is approximately 2 feet x 2 feet. I used Celebrations Cricut cart and the Mickey Font cart.

I cut the pink frosting by hand to create an icing look for the cake. I created a drop shadow for Lily's name and the 5 using different colored vinyl. I also had to free hand to cut additional pieces to make the cake plate look rounded at the top and more realistic.

When my daughter woke up and saw it she screamed and said I was the best mom ever, so of course it was ALL worth it!
