90... WOW!

I recently purchased the 'CINDY LOO' Cricut cartridge, so I thought I'd make my Grandmother a birthday card using some of the cuts from this lovely collection.  She will be 90!  I used a couple of patterned papers, one for the florish and frame and one for the background mat. 

CARD BASE - blue scalloped card blank (6" x 6")
1ST MAT - 'MY MIND'S EYE' 'Pretty Please' (5 5/8" x 5 5/8") - free with a craft magazine
CRICUT CUT FRAME- using 'TERESA COLLINS' 'Fabrication' 'floral garden' and 'CINDY LOO' cartridge, 'frame' creative feature p. 40 <Flrish3> (3") and <Flrish3-s> (3")
CRICUT CUT BIRD - using Cricut CS p.64 <Bird> (3") - cut and adhered all layers, adhered to card using foam pads
CRICUT CUT '90' - using black CS and the 'font' creative feature p.36 cut <Frame1> (1 1/4") and p.37 cut <Frame2> (1 1/4"), then using blue CS and the 'font layer' creative feature p.36 cut <Frame1> (1 1/4") and p.37 cut <Frame2> (1 1/4") - adhere the layers together, then adhered to card using foam pads
SENTIMENT - 'happy birthday' rub-on - from stash
EMBELLISHMENTS - pearls, butterfly and flower - from stash
I'm really pleased with the way this turned out and I'm LOVING this cartridge!
