Happy Birthday slider card

Hi everyone!!

I have another challenge card to share with you today.  I made this birthday card for the My Pink Stamper (Robyn) birthday challenge

This cute little cake from Simply Charmed was cut at 2 1/2".  I lined up the candle and placed them on the slider so when you pull the tab, the candles "go out"... I thought it was oh-so-cute! :)

The "Make a Wish" stamp and the glitter glue is from Studio G.

The "Happy Birthday" stamp is from Target's dollar bins.

The cake is mounted up on pop dots.  The little light yellow ribbon is from my stash.

  I have matching polka dot paper on the inside of the card too, but forgot to take a picture of it. :(

I do have the gypsy cut file for this card.  If you'd like it, please email or tell me in a comment and I can email it to you.  The file uses Simply Charmed, Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and Plantin Schoolbook.

Thanks so much for visiting me here at  I'd love to hear what you think.  Feel free to become a follower or sign up for my email updates (provided through FeedBurner).  I'd love to share my crafting journey with you! - Cheryl

Another adorable card. Very clever. I'd love the gypsy file if you don't mind. Just a ? tho. Do I connect my gypsy to the computer and then import the file into the gypsy? Sorry I am just learning my cricut gypsy and make the cut software...And I'm not a fast learning LOL Thank you so much.
