Red, White & Blue birthday

The next fortnights challenge over at Simply Create Too is #110 Red, White & Blue. I found this box card template on the silhouette store and thought it would be great for a male card with a simple digi behind it. I found this digi in my stash and knew it was perfect. I mounted it with 3D craft foam to make it pop off the background paper before attaching the front of the box card.

I got this amazing Digi from Julia Spiri and I adore it! I decided that this beautiful image needed to be pride of place on a card. I fussy cut her after colouring her with pencils. I glued some patterned paper to a shaped card and cut it out so it matched the previous card shape. Next I embossed a scalloped shape with a Sheena embossing folder before mounting the sentiment onto with 3d craft foam. I added candi around the edge of the card and on the corners of the base.
