It's the Merry Old Land of Oz - Birthday Greetings for 613 Avenue Create

It's a new challenge at 613 Avenue Create with the theme being Birthday!!!!!!! Now, how wonderfully easy is that because I know if you're anything like me, you're always creating a birthday card!!!

There are two fabulous sponsors:

for my project, I chose to use Flat Friends Yellow Brick Road. Sew, let's head off to the "Merry Old Land of Oz" and follow that Yellow Brick Road but avoid the poppy fields and the Wicked Witch is flying close to Emerald City and Belinda upsets me with just not telling Dorothy in the beginning all she had to do is click her ruby red slippers 3 times saying "there's no place like home!!!"

as an cascade story board card

  • cascade card using www.coordinations cardstock which was embossed using the reptile folder - thought it looked like the yellow brick road
  • Flat Friends Yellow Brick road was colored using Whisper Strokes and Spectrum Noir Markers with gel pen accents, Stickles for the ruby red slippers and fussy cut around the edges
  • Emerald City was created using Cricut Create a Critter Cartridge cutting the sandcastle with Stickles to the sparkle 
  • my ruby red shoe was cut using you guessed it Cinderella's glass slipper from Cricut Disney Happily Ever After Cartridge and then added Stickles to glitter it up!
  • Scarecrow, Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, Wicked Witch, and Good Witch were from Little Scraps of Heaven but are no longer available
  • Create with TLC "Happy Birthday to a timeless Classic who will never go out of style" had been a previous freebie which was chalked around the edges and thought it was the purrrfect sentiment for this classic story!!!
