Yellow Submarine Card/ Birthday Celebration

Using Cricut Life's A Beach and other cartridges I made a 5"x7" Yellow Submarine card for my
son's 11th birthday. It was a great day with family & friends swimming, BBQing, cupcakes and presents. I had to cut many periscopes to mimic the Beatles Yellow Submarine and I paper pieced
the layers to get the different colors. I used the Animal Kingdom cartridge for the dog and cat heads.
I custom decorated them to look like our cat Jack and dog Minnie. I used Paper Dolls for the boy head and hair and Peachy Keen face stamps to look like my little guy (I guess not so little anymore!) and Groovy Times for the rainbow. I would have done more to the card if I wasn't in such a hurry with all the party preparations.

I used one of those awesome action wobbles I bought from The Scrapbooking Queen.
 They are the coolest! 

I added another rainbow and music notes to the inside of the card.
I found this awesome Yellow Submarine ice cube tray and made some submarine candies!

I then used them to decorate my famous chocolate-chocolate-chip cupcakes that my friends and family love and ask for all the time. I used the rainbow sour tape for the rainbow. I've seen pics all over pinterest with the rainbow cupcakes and thought that it would add just the right touch.
I decorated the house with rainbow streamers and these Beatle's cards that I used for the invitations. as well as more Yellow Submarine cuts. It was a fun day and my son was very happy!
I will be entering my card into the "Anything Goes" challenge on the Action Wobble website.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful day!
