Patriotic Birthday

Happy 4th to you my crafty friends and a BIG happy birthday to my precious baby boy! I can't believe he is 2 today:-) So, in honor of my little firecracker, I made this patriotic Elmo birthday card. I admit, I made this very quickly yesterday! I've been so busy getting ready for his party today, I plumb forgot to make his card.

I used three Cuttlebug embossing folders- Candy Cane, D'vine Swirl, and Stars. Elmo is from the Elmo and Friends Holiday Cricut cartridge. I added a little Stickles (of course) to his hat and tied a silver star button with Air Mail twine. I stamped the sentiment on a small piece of white card stock and used my Stampin' Up ticket corner punch.

There are a lot of patriotic challenges this week. Make sure you check them out - Paper Playtime, Fantabulous Cricut Challenge, My Craft Spot, Celebrate The Occasion, Die Cuttin' Divas, and Paper Crafting World.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful holiday:-)
