You make me Smile!

This card was made from the Cricut Cartridges: Sesame Street Holidays, Best of Pixar, and Paper Dolls for Everyday.  All of the paper used is from Stampin' Up!  I love the quality of their paper it is thick and cuts great in the Cricut.
Elmo is cut at 5", the sun at 1.71", the cloud at 4" and the sand at 1.31".  I used my Gypsy to decide how big I measured each one, that is why the measurements are a little funky.  Elmo and the sun are both from the Sesame Street Holidays cartridge, the cloud is from Paper Dolls For Everday, and the sand is from the Best of Pixar cartridge.  The sand can be found behind Dory using the icon feature.  Here is another card I made using the same sand.  


The paper colors I used from Stampin' Up are: Real Red (Elmo), Pumpkin Pie (nose), Wild Wasabi (shorts and mask), and River Rock (Sand).  I put Glossy Accents on Elmo's mask and flippers to make them look wet.  The sand and Elmo were attached using pop dots to add dimension.  The sentiment is from the Pink By Design Simply Everything stamp set.
