July 4th Birthday


I've had a life-long friend who celebrates her birthday on July 4th, and loves that there are fireworks on her birthday every year! I started by making a panel of red, white and blue squares of dsp and cardstock, then matted it on a white panel. The Inky Antics image was colored with Copics and cut with a Gina Marie Designs stitched square die. The card base is Pacific Point and I stamped assorted fireworks with Versafine ink and a Winnie and Walter Sparkle stamp set, embossing the images with red, silver, white and gold ep. I added a few Nuvo glitter drops in blue to add to the festivities. The word Sparkle was gold embossed on red, while the "On Your Day" portion of the sentiment was embossed with white on navy.


Thanks for the visit, and I hope to be back again soon! Have a great weekend!

AND.... besides fireworks think of all those people who go on picnics to celebrate your friend's birthday. Why! It's almost like it is a holiday or something.

Seriously, though I love seeing what you make for your friend every year. You have the best patriotic RWB card ideas. This one is another wonderful one!
