Happy Bithday Sketch #15

Well, Aug is upon us, and I am sure , like myself  you have all been busy perusing the new CTMH Fall and winter Idea Book 2013.There are so many great new things and I think I want them all !!! I know, I am a hoader.....LOL. To start with, I just had to have the new cartriadge , Artbooking. The first two carts are so awesome and this one did not disappoint, so  decided I would show case something from it, on this weeks'
challenge sketch for Atlantic Hearts.
We all need a stash of birthday cards on hand and this one was too easy with this great cartridge. My card is 5x 7, and the first layer is cut at 4 3/4 x 6 3/4. All the cut outs were done with the same key. It is last row, second last key. Happy was cut on basic at 1", and Birthday was cut on basic shift lock at 1". the cake was cut on icon at 2.5" and the overlay for it was cut on icon shift lock also at 2.5". The star overlay which is a new feature that I love, (There are all kinds of wonderful overlays for your cards and layouts on this cart!!!) was cut on "overlay" shift lock  at 4.5" x 6.5". If you have a gypsy or use the Cricut Craft Room, you will be able to adjust the size to your liking. For those of you who don't, I am not sure if you set your cricut to cut at 4.5"(height, as this cuts length ways) exactly what size your width will be, You will have to play with it and see.The ribbon came from my ribbon stash, and the bling from the Laughing Lola WOTG Card Making Kit(another little dandy you are just going to love!!).
Colors used were Gypsy,Daisy White, and Buttercup
Cartridge: Artbooking
I hope you try this wonderful new cartridge,I can tell you how to get one for 1/2 price!!!  Have a great week everyone and don't forget to make use of all your bits and pieces.
