INSIDE OF CARD
Welcome to the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #73. This challenge is a surprise for our Teammate, America Kuhn. Her birthday was July 4th. So the challenge this time is to make a birthday card.
America is taking the summer off to travel from Washington State to New York State with her family. It is also a cross-country move for them. So to let her know we are thinking of her, the design team has made birthday cards for her, as she will be checking in to the challenge site while on her journey.
Since her birthday was July 4th, I decided to go with red, white and blue and stars and stripes, And as you can see, the little Gruffie is all set to serve up the cake for this special occasion.
I colored with Copic Markers. The stars were cut on my Big Shot using a sizzix die. I added a little bling to the stars with some rhinestone stars in the centers. The Frame is from Spellbinders. Inside I have used the Stampin' Up Top Note die and stamped some fireworks and embossed with tinsel red embossing powder.
The sentiment is by Dacie's.
To check out the other birthday cards for America, go to the House Mouse and Friends Challenge blog and have a peek.........they are outstanding! And while you're at it, dust off a house mouse stamp and enter the challenge. It runs through Sunday, July 18th. We are offering a House Mouse Stamp as a prize for this challenge.
Happy Birthday, America, enjoy every minute of your trek across the United States to your new home with your family. Hope there is a delicious cake and some cool ice cream. And, best wishes for many more happy healthy birthdays...............
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great Monday. Until later...................
