Red, White and Blue Birthday Wishes

Happy Tuesday!

I'm popping in very quickly to share a card I put together last night.  My inspiration came from the Red, White and Blue colors at this week's The Kraft Journal and the simple layout at Seize the Sketch.

I began with a Kraft card base and some leftover Fourth of July patterned paper from last year's projects.  I believe they are from Pebbles.  The yummy cupcake was cut at 2 3/4 inches from Cricut's Doodlecharms cartridge.  I then mounted it onto a piece of Kraft card stock that I embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  The image panel is matted on a Night of Navy card stock.  I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of white card stock and adhered it to the cardfront overlapping the image panel.  The Happy Birthday message is from SU! Button Greetings, and was stamped in Early Espresso ink.  The patterned paper is broken up with some Crumb Cake seam binding.  I finished off the card with 2 enamel dots.
Thanks for stopping by,
