Birthday cards for Aunty Zoe!

Today is my sister-in-law's birthday and after school my son wanted to make her a card. He had a very specific idea of what he wanted, he told me it had to have a bunny, which needed to be yellow, and he wanted pink ribbon going along the bottom, and he wanted to use my Cricut pens. I took a few photos to share with you-
He is only 4 and he knows just how to use my Cricut! I didn't need to do anything apart from change the pen and the blade over.
He calls this my flipper, and he insists on using it everytime! Here is taking off the flowers and an oval he cut from George.
Here is Izzy wanting to have a go-it's very tempting all those buttons!!
 After he cut out all his bits, he cut some paper 14.5cmx20.5cm
 Here is the all important pink ribbon!
And the finished card-and my very cute and proud boy!!

I also made a card for my Sister-in-law. I was also going to do a rabbit, but then I had a look at the Flaunt it Friday challenge, to use a sheep cut, I have used the sheep that is on From My Kitchen. 
The paper is K&Co. The ribbon is Dovecraft. I used a Penny Black stamp. The tag is from Making Memories. I am not sure it is as good as Ethan's card, but I hope she likes it all the same!!
