Happy 4th of July!

Hi everyone,

I would like to wish all my neighbours south of the border a very Happy 4th of July. Hope you have a great day! And for those of you who happen to be also celebrating a birthday today this card is for you. I actually met someone today who is so lucky!
With that I have a card that I created for the occasion using all Simon Says Stamp products
which I am entering into the following challenges:

Patriotic theme act and the Red, White and blue theme at

I started with the Falling Stars stencil and added blue and red inks. Stamped the Wishing sentiment with both inks and the Happy Birthday with Versamark ink and heat embossed using their white embossing powder on navy card stock.
Decided to add a little more interest by dry embossing around the edges using their Stitched Rectangles die set.
Added a final touch with some sequins and there you have it.

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy celebration. Be safe!
