Star Spangled Birthday!

Hi all!  Hope you are enjoying your Thursday evening.  It's been a hectic week and though I had finished a few projects on Tuesday, I haven't had a moment to photograph them or post them until just now..  It's been just, busy, busy busy! Lol...  Well, for this post I thought I would share a card that  was insired by two different challenges. Mojo Monday #194  and  Flourishes Star Spangled Challenge....

It also gave me a good opportunity to get a little ahead of the game, so to speak, and start on my patriotic cards for the 4th of July. Yay! 8-) 

I must say that this was a pretty fun sketch to work with and I broke out my brand new K&Co Ameicana stack, since it was just perfect to go along with the Flourishes Star Spangled theme.  After picking the DP's I wanted to use for the different strips of paper for the the Mojo sketch, I matted them up with a bit of Red CS from my stash.  My Flourishes sentiment was stamped with Memento Rich Coco directly onto my card. My layered star award was cut out with the help of my Cricut and the Plantin School Book cartridge. And to finish it all up I added a couole of fun little MS punched borders, some seam binding ribbon, a button and a bit of hemp twine tied up in a bow. 

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your evening, and thanks so much for stopping by! 8-)
