Happy Birthday Firecracker Baby!



Two cards from today!  Wow!

I wanted to make a birthday card, 
for my Sister, using the (sadly retired) 
Happy Congratulations stamp set.

This is another set that I was (incredibly) surprised 
was not carried over into our new annual catalog!  
I LOVE this stamp set!

Luckily, it is still available

My Sister was born on the 4th of July 
so a Red/White/Blue theme is expected ;)

The Paper Players Challenge this week is to use
 Red/White/Blue in your project!  Ha!  No brainer!
The Sketch Challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches
looked like a fun one to use for her card.
I hope she likes it.
I think it came out quite nice... if I may say so ;)
If you happen to have this stamp set, 
and would like to re-create my card, 
I am providing a full supply list 
at the end of this post.

I can think of many other images 
you could substitute for the lanterns... 
think outside the box and give it a try!
If you do, send me a link to your project!
I'd love to see it!

Happy Stamping 
and Thanks for visiting me again today!
Mary
