For those of you in the USA - Happy Independence Day and for my sweet friend Kelsi - Happy Birthday! Can you imagine a birthday on the 4th of July? I mean it's like the whole country is celebrating! Today I created the perfect birthday day card for this sweet girl using the precious Happy Birthday Stamp Set! Take a look. . .
I just LOVE the combo of red, white and blue, and not just on Independence Day. My husband and I are both in politics and my DD's school colors are red, white and blue - so we come by it "naturally"!
I stamped Happy Birthday girl in Memento Tuxedo Black in and then colored her with Copic markers. It seems my shading is getting better, but I think if I practiced it all day - every day, it would never be perfect. . .sigh. Oh well, at least I am trying! And that's what the American spirit is all about, right?
The pattern paper which, in my humble but accurate opinion is too yummy for words, is from Doodlebug Design's Stars & Strips Collection. I love it so much, I used it on another card for July!
What birthday girl would complete without a glittery cupcake? Here's a close up. . .
Doesn't it look so good you just want to take a bite? I used the Crystal Snow in White Ultra Fine from Stampendous!
And, finally I created my own sentiment. . .
I think Kelsi will LOVE it! And, if you think of her, lite a sparkler or two!
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY TO THE USA!
