Just Us Girls #148

So much excitement here that I can hardly contain myself!  (that's probably why I'm in another migraine cycle!!) All of our kids, well all but one, and their families are coming home from across the US, and we are going to celebrate my husband's birthday.  Most of the kids will be here over the course of two weeks, and then a huge party on a Saturday at a beautiful park. We've hired a fantabulous photographer, the menu is well planned, and we'll have games and visiting and fun galore!  I'm going to sit down with all the little ones -- I think there are about 7 of them, and we'll "do projects" -- make some decorations for the big day.  Should be a blast.  Anyway...I needed a special card for my hunny's birthday, and this is the one that I came up with.  JUGS#148 had the perfect sketch, and the card almost made itself!  I love the way it turned out, and hope he does too.  Here 'tis:

I started out with SU white cardstock, used their Night of Navy ink for the sentiment, and their little filigree with a silver brad.  The navy cardstock is Bazzill.  All of the other fantastic papers are from my newest favorite collection - Teresa Collins Everyday Moments. I used MFT's fishtail die to cut the striped and navy flags in the center, and my Cricut to cut the sentiment shapes.  Just Because Cards cartridge.  The big brads are from Pink Paislee's Queen Bee line (don't you just love it when the colors from two different collections are a perfect match?!!)  The sentiment itself is from PTI's Birthday Basics set.  Love that set, and use it often!  This card turned out just the way I pictured it!  Doin' the happy dance now!
