Red White and Blue 18th

Another special order - an 18th birthday card for 'Ross'...

My colour scheme was inspired by the mood board at Double D Challenges:

You gotta love red white and blue - it lends itself very well to masculine cards and I think stars are a great theme for men.

The papers are from a mixed pad from The Range and I used Tattered Lace 'table' numbers dies cut in two colours to create a shadow effect. The greeting was made in Publisher using Copperplate Gothic font and I've gone old school by using a hand punch for the stars.

Hopefully this card will really stand out as I've used a 7x7 inch base card.

I've also entered this card into the challenges at:

Southern Girls #159 - use an actual punch
Seize The Birthday - anything goes
Unicorn Challenges #21 - special occasions

Thanks for visiting
