Celebrating

Here's another birthday card.  I think it is my last for this month.  Phew, it's been a busy month.  This one is for my brother-in-law.  He lives in New York City, so I thought this skyline of a city would be a perfect fit for him.  I added the fireworks to add to the celebratory feel.  You can't really see it, but the fireworks are really sparkly, too.  I embossed the gold one with really glittery gold embossing powder and the other two with a holographic clear powder.  I really wish it showed up in the photo.

Challenges:
Crating Musketeers #15--Summertine (fireworks are a definite summertime activity around here)
Sarah Hurley #94--celebration
Raisin Boat #25--summertime
Suzy Bees #38--anything goes
Craft Hoarders Annonymous #12--Who's the Boss (embossing) (the item I was hoarding is that strip of red paper.  I had to cut it down a bit but it really wasn't much bigger; I just can't bear to throw anything away)
Our Daily Bread Designs #210--sponging or use a stencil
Loves RubberStamps #113--Summer Fun
Creative Inspirations #275--Here come summer
The Paper Nest Dolls #15--anything goes

Supplies:
Stamps: Sweet n' Sassy "Landscape Silhouettes"; Cloud 9 Designs fireworks; Verve "Be Blessed" sentiment
