When in doubt...

... Use Lettering for Boys!
I found three challenges to inspire me to make a card for my niece's hubster's birthday card:
Cute Card Thursday - 215 One for the Boys
Creative Card Crew - 10 Sentiment as a focal point
Raise the Bar - 103 Report Cards (letters and text)
I was fortunate enough to snag a nearly new Cricut Expression to replace my smaller Cricut and I thought I would try it out today.  It's a bit more complicated than my older version but I managed to cut this simple lettering.  My DPs are Graphic 45 Le Cirque for  "Chris" and a new Recollections stack for the background and "Birthday".  I added a little Marianne car and a banner of red to match.
