Red, White & Blue Birthday Card

This card is for a friend who is very patriotic and her birthday is close to the 4th.  I hope she likes it, it was really fun to make!

 The background paper is a mat stack I've had for a long time.  I know I got it from Hobby Lobby, but don't remember the brand.  The boy in the car is from "A Child's Year" cut at 2 1/2".  I inked the edges of the card with royal blue.

Again, I love pop-dots!

The tag is from "Tags, Bags, Boxes and More".  I tried several sizes, and am not sure which size this one is.  The stamp is from Studio G and the "ink" is Studio G's chalk ink.  I'm loving that stuff.  It shows up in color on even the darkest cardstock.  The "ribbon" is actually a strip of red cardstock that stuck on my cutting mat and came off in layers.  I usually hate it when that happens, but this time I could use it! 

 A quick finishing touch on the inside and voila!  And the coolest thing is, except for the star mat, this was all cut from scraps!

I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:
Birthday Sundaes Stars & Stripes Challenge ( I hope it counts that my stripe is on the inside)
Designed 2 Delight Saturday Challenge
My Craft Spot
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday

Have a great day!!!
