Americana Birthday

Morning friends! Happy 4th of July to all of my American friends and a special 'Happy Birthday' to my super special husband, Guy! I posted this card on the Maja Design blog yesterday, but thought it would be more appropriate to post it here today:

I used Maja Design's Life by the Sea collection along with a multitude of various textiles of stars, including sequin, wood and paper. I distressed all the edges, both with a knife and some ink.  Here's another angle:

Hope you all enjoy the day!

Stamps: American Hero (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Life by the Sea (Maja Design), Natural White (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Outdoor Denim (CTMH), Vintage Photo distress ink (Ranger)
Accessories: Star die cuts (MFT), wooden star, star sequins, twine, paper distresser, dauber
Size: 4 1/4" X 5 1/2"
Pin It
