Happy Birthday Stars and Stripes

Hope you are having a great day! With the beginning of a three day weekend away from work, I found time this afternoon to play with the Cricut! Were you thinking red, white, and blue when you read the post title! Recently my daughter gave me an eighty page paper pack by The Paper Studio called Girls Live To Rock. I have been wondering what to do with these bright-rocking papers. After playing with several patterned papers, this is my results. Hmm, I like these colors too!
Card is 5 x 6 1/2. I am using Sassy Lil' Card Sketches June 28th sketch. I first layered a piece of the pink and yellow stripe to the top edge of the card. The Martha Stewart Layered Arches edge punch was used on the edge.
Cricut Cartridges:
Cricut American Alphabet - Star  on page 25 cut 2.50". After making the first white shadow at 2.50", I increased the shadow cut to 2.75" for the black shadow. I am happy with the results of the star. It is pop-dotted on the mat.
Wild Card - Happy Birthday on page 61 cut 4.25"
Lots of inking and my card is completed. Hope a certain teenager will be happy with it! Now I need to find a use for all the guitar papers!

Sassy Lil' Card Sketches - June 28th sketch
