Happy Birthday with a Twist for SVG Attic

Happy Wednesday, everyone.  It's so close to the 4th of July that we have fireworks going off every night at dusk in our neighborhood (poor dogs, they just don't like them!).  I'm posting today for SVG Attic, and I used a patriotic kit, but made a creative twist with it. 
Here's what I created:

I used the JGW Stars & Stripes Card Kit, but instead of using patriotic papers, I went with a birthday theme.  July is a very popular month for birthdays with my family and friends so I need quite a few birthday cards.  Several are close to the 4th of July, so I thought this would be a fun twist.
After cutting out the card and attaching the layers, I stamped the "Happy Birthday" and the fireworks stamps on the label in second generation stamping.  The bling is from my stash.  All cardstock is from Close To My Heart
I have a giveaway going on, celebrating several events: I wrote my 500th blog post last week, I just reached 400 followers on my blog, and I have over 100 "likes" on my Facebook page, Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  To celebrate all those things,  I'm having a giveaway:  I have some Timeless Twine, some 3 Girl JAM ribbon, a Unity stamp set, a Close To My Heart stamp set, some Pinque Peacock embellishments, a 6x6 paper pad, and various embellishments that I need a home for. I also have two generous sponsors:  DigiStamps4Joy is giving a $10 gift certificate to the store, and The Cutting Cafe is offering any 3 sets.  WOW! If you'd like to be eligible to win, please leave a comment on any of my blog posts between now and July 6.  I'll draw a winner on my birthday.  It's my day, and you get the present!  I'd also love it if you "like" my Facebook page and follow my blog, if you don't already. 
Happy 4th of July, my American friends!
