Happy Birthday - Robyn's DT call

Hi everyone!
 I thought it would be fun to join in the competition at My Pink Stamper this week!  I noticed a lot of friends and amazing bloggers are trying for a chance on the design team for Robyn.  Well, there are only two spots and over 150 entries!!!  I hardly think I will make the cut - but thought it would be fun to join along!  I love the colors she chose (her favorites) pink, green and brown.  Aren't those fun?  You also have to use your favorite Cricut cartridge and well let's just say I have too many favorites! LOL - but I did choose my new Lite - Four Legged Friends.  You need to also include a recipe for your card!

Green Basic Grey - Cappella
Designer Paper Basic Grey - Cappella
Light Pink Cricut Paper - Red and Pink Stack
Brown Paper (light and dark) - Bazzil Cardstock
White thread or white pen for stitching
Pink Ribbon
Tombo Glue
Foam Pop dots

Cricut Expressions
ATG gun or other adhesive runner
Sewing Machine (optional)
Happy Birthday Sentiment

I designed the card on my Gypsy and cut everything out for a 5x5 card base.  The stitching was done on three sections of the card.  I chose the hamster cut and cut them at about 1.3 inches for the small and 2.3 for the larger hamster.  I layered each piece and then attached each section with my ATG (1/4 inch tape).  Lastly, I popped out each hamster!  Thanks for looking and join the fun at My Pink Stamper!!
