Stars and Stripes

Sorry but I just was dying to do this creation that I had to post this - another one for the day. I have combined three challenges today. Firstly, Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge which is US Independence Day or Red, White & Blue. Easy peasy. I loved doing this ATC. I used Edwin who gets neglected a lot so it was a welcome change.
Secondly, I followed this fabulous sketch from Mojo Monday with ABC Challenge which theme is 'U for United States'. I actually did this card specifically for my Brother-in-law who celebrates his birthday on 4th July. So it was perfect. I got to get three challenges out of the way and make a card for my BIL. Wonderful. LOL. Hope you like.


Products: Magnolia stamp; SU In the Stars , Big Bold Birthday & Birthday Whimsy stamp sets; SU Pacific Point, WW & Riding Hood Red card; SU Real Red & Pacific Point ink; SU blender pen; SU Pacific Point ribbon; MM Slice & DC2; Dimensional dots.
