Red, White and Blue Birthday Card

Red, White and Blue Birthday Card
Since it was a rainy afternoon, I got to stay in and "play"....I mean stamp. :) This card fits several current challenges. Moxie Fab has a beautiful borders challenge. I used the sketch at Clean and Simple for my base. Stamp Something has a "celebrate" using red, white and blue while Stampin'For The Weekend has a favorite things challenge. My favorite things on this card are my diecuts and stamps. I used my Sizzix eClips to do the borders and stars plus a Sizzix embossing folder. The stamps are by The {Stamps} Of Life which is one of my favorite stamp companies. I love how all of Stephanie's stamps work with each other. She has versatile and fun images.
Do you have fun weekend plans? I do but don't know what they are. What? You say that makes no sense? :) My oldest daughter has informed me to be packed in the morning but won't tell me where our destination is! She's told me what I'll need to pack but nothing else! What fun! I'll have to tell you all about it Monday! Wink! :)

  2. Bev,
    LOVE this card--my fave color combo!
    I absolutely have to have that embossing folder. Do you know the name of it? I haven't ever seen it before.
    Thanks!
