Birthday Boy Balloon and Winner

***If you are looking for my project for the Whimsical Wednesday Challenge scroll down of click HERE***

Hi friends. Today, I'm sharing a birthday card for one of my nephews but also my entry for the Let's Face it Friday Challenge over at the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog.

I made a shaped card with a hot air balloon shadow off of the Pop-Up Neighborhood Cricut cartridge. I cut all the balloon layers out at the 5.25" size. I cut the little boy out of the Everyday Paper Doll Cricut cartridge and he was cut at 1.75" and luckily my very smallest size of Winter Wonderland face stamps (from Peachy Keen Stamps) fit him perfectly. I also added lots of faux stitching with my Gellyroll pens. The darling sentiment and dinosaur are from Emma's new All Around Birthday Time stamp set and the circle it is stamped on is the circle die from her Scallop & Stitched Circle Die set.

I also wanted to announce the winner from my stop on the My Creative Time Blog Hop.

The winner is:
