Awesome patriotic colors this week for the color challenge (Real Red, white, and Pacific Point). I had to do a substitute on the blue and used Ballet Blue - Wow, that is from way back many years ago. I seem to have more than a life time supply of paper, and I'm trying to hold off in getting any more until I use up all my stash from the past! Trying to get it down to a half life-time supply LOL!
I kept my card sweet and simple for a special friend who happens to have been born on the 4th of July!

Terrific! Love how you used the colors for this fun birthday card. The embossed stars are beautiful. The dots are a nice touch. I love Ballet Blue and still have some. I enjoyed your comment about using paper up to have only half a lifetime supply. LOL I'm trying to do the same thing with the retired colors! I keep buying the newer colors. Love your card. Nicely done! I like the sentiment, too. Great card.

What a special birthday card for someone with a July 4th birthday! The texture on the stars adds extra interest and your placement of the enamel dots is perfect to balance the other elements. Nice job, great card!
