All-American Happy Birthday:-)

Wow! Has it really been since Tuesday that I posted a project? Time flies when you're taking care of a sick baby and getting ready for his party while the DH is stuck in Calgary:-P So, guess what I did the second he got home? I couldn't get to my craft room fast enough! :-) Here is what I whipped up so I could get it submitted before the deadlines (I've actually stayed up all night at times making cards only to discover I missed the time cut-off).

For this Critcutless card I used a large chipboard star from Stampin' Up (S/U). The smaller faux-button star is paper punch from EK Success. I used a new die I bought from Papertrey Inc (PTI) for the red "ric-rac". The sentiment is also from PTI - Birthday Basics. I used a technique for the stamped image that I saw online awhile back -- alter the shape of a long clear acrylic stamp as you place it on the stamping block. I added some air-mail twine from The Cupcake Social and Stickles. The challenges are Birthday Sundaes, Monday Challenge, Celebrate The OccasionPaper Playtime, Wacky Wednesday, Penny's Paper-Crafty, and Crop Stop. Check out these challenges. There may still be time to play:-) Thanks for stopping by. Have a creative day!
