Have a ROARin good birthday!

Today I got Lifes a Party and Spring Holiday Cards cricut cartridges! I was so excited that I had to make a project right away using both!

The box, stamp square and dot patterned paper are all cut from Spring Holiday Cards. I got this cartridge mainly for this box. I LOVE it!! The Lion is from Life's a Party and was also a main reason for buying that cartridge.

The stamp "Have a ROARin good birthday" Is from Pink by Design's stamp set- Take the Cake and can been seen here.

Side View...
