Birthday Card for Male Using CTMH Jackson Paper, Cricut Artiste and Aurora Wings Puppy In A Boot Digi

Hello friends.  I hope all of you are doing well.  I have started to feel better the past few days. I finally figured out that the bone broth I was eating; which is supposed to be healthy for you; was actually making me sicker.  Once I stopped that; I felt better.  I am finding out that things that are healthy for other people don't necessarily work for me.  I guess that is why we are supposed to listen to our own body and to our intuition; rather than to someone else.

I have been having fun creating cards the past few days.  I am excited to finally feel good enough to create this adorable card using Aurora Wings Puppy In a Boot.  I love this sweetie; and have been wanting to create with it for quite a while now.  I couldn't decide what to do with it; so I finally made it a Birthday card for a male.  I don't seem to have enough cards for boys; although it can still be used for a girl as well.  Check out the fabulous digis at Aurora Wings.  This one is not available in the shop; as it was a freebie in Sept. 2014, I think.  

I wanted to use my new CTMH Jackson paper; which is available April 1st; in the new Expressions 2 Idea Book.  There are two new ones; and I love both of them.  I loved this barn red and chocolate pattern on this paper; as well as the pretty banner paper with several colors in it.  I hope you enjoy this card.
