Birthday Card For A Young Lady (using Create A Critter)

So many Birthdays over the next few months! I decided to get a head start on card making so I wouldn't have to run to the store and buy a less personal one at the last minute. This card I made for my niece. I remembered from one of her previous visits where I let her play with the Cricut that she really liked pink. So I started with that as my base color. Then I thought...what would a young girl like? And I came up with a cute little dog.  All of these shapes came from the Create A Critter Cartridge.

Project Details:
Cartridge: Create A Critter
Card Size: 4.5" x 6"
Dog: Page 34, Terrier. Cut at 2". I didn't cut the very first layer that colors his eyes and ears. Instead I used scraps of pinks and a blue to color those features. I also put foam squares under the dog to pop him off the card.
Presents: Page 27, Bear accessory. I cut these in different sizes ranging from .75" - 2". I didn't end up using all of the ones I cut. The striped gift is 2".
Sentiment: Page 27, phrase for bear. I believe I cut this out at 1.75". Don't forget the dot for the "I" when you pull this off your mat!
Misc: Embellished with a strip of satiny black ribbon. Another idea for the card would to be to put a little party  hat on the dog.
