July Birthdays

I combined two of my favorite challenges together to come up with another  July birthday card. The ColourQ challenge and the City Crafter Challenge combined together gave me the inspiration for this card:


I bought this sentiment along with a similar one for the month of April. I don't know who makes them but I love that they describe the months in celebration.  I purchased them for my girl's birthdays month and think they will get a kick out a card with their birthday month mentioned in the verse. (Of course they will get plenty of use for other birthdays too :)

The background paper is Webster's Pages and is perfect for the blue and grey tones. I stamped the sentiment using Versacolor Burgundy ink. The sparklers (Northwoods Rubber Stamps) was stamped using StaZon Grey ink.

Everything was sparkled up using my handy dandy Stampendous Crystal Glitter (ultra fine).

The charm with the stars is another one of my jewelry finds on clearance and is an earring.

Here is the fun inspiration picture:

I am looking forward to a long holiday weekend! Come back tomorrow for another fun Lily Pad challenge.
