Patriotic Birthday Card

The 4th of July is one of my very favorite holidays and while there are lots of family birthdays near to it.


I started with a card idea from Rubber Stamp Tapestry's facebook page (link here, not sure if it is a public or private photo) and decided to take my own spin on it using supplies I already had.



Supplies: Rubber Stamp Tapestry A Spot of Tea and Holiday Stockings stamp sets, Avery Elle Pigment inks, Darice star die, My Mind's Eye Summer Fresh paper pad, Hero Arts Happy Stamp n Cut die and stamp set


I would love to participate in the following challenges:
Curtain Call Red, White and Blue
SimonSaysStamp Monday Challenge Red White and/or Blue
Cards In Envy Patriotic Please

Thanks for stopping by! I hope my cardmaking friends in the USA have a wonderful Independence Day!  Come back again soon!

Wow, this design is just fabulous both inside and outside! I love the star cut within those beautifully stamped flowers and the inside is a great surprise to how you finished the sentiment! I love this great idea! BTW, thanks so much for all the kind words you've been leaving in blogland for me and my DT spot on TMS. You are too kind and have truly made my day with your thoughtful words! (big hugs)
