A Bear-y Happy Birthday!

Hello my crafty friends!  I hope this post finds you well as I thought I would share with you a card for a dear friends birthday on Friday!  I must say that this card was quite the challenge-- I am afraid my Silhouette Cameo and I am not on speaking terms right now and I finally had to break my Cricut Explore out of hiding (I picked it up on Black Friday... stood outside and almost froze my toes :)) But anyway... it's been quite the learning curve for me.  While I do adore how the Explore cuts like buttah--seriously the cutting is amazing the format vs the Cameo is quite different!  Let's just say I have a ways to go :)  I am also thinking this cutie up with my friends over at Pretty Cute Stamps--they are having a challenge this month and it's all about birthdays!

This is a very cute card!! Love all the cuts you combined :) As a Cricut Explore owner myself, I'm super happy with it! There are several FB groups (Cricut Design Space, I luv My Cricut) that have lots of really helpful info on using the Explore. Thanks so much for joining us at Pretty Cute Stamps challenge this month!
