Patriotic BBTB2 challenge

With the 4th of July right around the corner I thought I would participate in the challenge over at the Bitten By The Bug !!!  I dont send any cards out for this holiday but I do have a few birthdays well my Uncles birthday is on the fourth so maybe this could work for his birthday card with the sentiment inside!!!  I used papers by Tim Holtz and my star embossing folder on this and Independence Day cartridge with my Cricut.




I thought since I just placed my first order from Simon Says Stamps that I would join in on one of their challenges also and this fell in line with their latest challenge "Sporty and or Patriotic 
They have almost anything you might be looking for in supplies!!!

Fabby paper and design.... my daughter in law has her birthday on July 4th, she is a cute redhaired freckled sweetie and her mother calls her "my little firecracker". Your card is wonderful, thanks for sharing it with us at BBTB2.
