Star Spangled Birthday

In our family July is a big birthday month. Several of the nieces and nephews were born around 4th of July.  So when it comes time to create birthday cards the red, white and blue are my favorite colors to use on their cards.

The ColourQ Challenge #90Off the Wall Challenge #56,  and the JUGS challenge this week use the same color scheme and patriotic 3D theme.  This helped me finish off two birthday cards for my nephews. (I made this card twice for them both).

Very clean and simple card:

The stamps include: Stampers Anonymous - Psychedelic Grunge CMS 056 and a Happy Birthday Sentiment from Inkadinkado.  My 3D for the Jugs challenge is the stars are popped with the buttons attached. The stars are edged in red. The stamp was inked up in several shades of blue.

The lovely inspiration photos:


Hope you have some fun plans for the weekend.
