Happy Birthday America

Happy Birthday America. Hope everyone is having a great 4th. I made a birthday card just for today.

This is my first attempt at making a shaker card. I used SU Work of Art to create my flag. The colors are Night Of Navy and Real Red. I used a random flower stamp to create the fire works and heat embossed them in silver and gold. I filled the card with tiny silver stars. I was shocked when it worked. I stamped the TAC celebrate in Night of Navy and tie a piece of baker's twine a long the bottom.
I am entering this card in 2 challenges
The Paper Players

I picked Twine    Night Of Navy   Birthday. I think a 4th of July card works for this.
And the next challenge is
Just add ink
This challenge is to create a shaker project.
 I also want to thank the gals over at just Add Ink for picking my card last week. I'm so happy you liked my card. It was a fun challenge

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your 4th of July.

Karen, this is fabulous - so festive! I laughed out loud at your comment that you were shocked when the shaker card worked; I felt much the same, making my first for this challenge! Great use of the Work of Art stamp set and the metallic embossed flowers. Love it. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink. :)

Wow, what an awesome patriotic card! Love how you created the flag, the "flower" fireworks, and it's a shaker card to boot! Thanks for playing along with my Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week at The Paper Players, Karen!
