Cool Birthday Card

This month at DeeDee's digis, the design of the month is called "Polar Dreams" and has several sweet images and sentiments, with the images in pre-colored and outline forms. I used one of the precolored images for this birthday card.
After importing the digi set to my Silhouette Design Studio, I chose this particular precolored image and the "Have a Cool birthday" sentiment for my card. I sized them up and cut them out on my Silhouette Portrait. Then I wanted to create a scene, so I made some waves with Pink and Main's scalloped waves dies, clouds and sun from WPlus9 Sunshine Layers dies and a blue sky with some shimmery light blue cardstock. The clouds and sun are made from adhesive-backed foam. The card base is a white top-fold card 6x6 inches.
