Sunshine Birthday Tag

Created this Birthday Tag with a Sunshine Theme to go with the Sun Sidewalk Chalk I'm giving a child for a birthday present.

Used Create A Critter Cricut cartridge for Sun image and used Gypsy to hide the face cuts. Had this saved on my Gypsy from a prior project. Used George & basic Shapes Cricut cartridge for the pennant/banner sentiment tag.

Has yellow color & many triangles (the sun has triangle points) and the banner/pennant sentiment tag.

Has 3 pattern papers from DCWV summer matstack. 

Has a sun button in center of Sun that I cut the back off of.

Added some ribbon. I ran out of the Sun ribbon that I had from JoAnn's but they do not have it anymore.
