Smiley from millan.net

Happy Monday folks welcome to another 
 House Mouse and Friends Monday chall.
this one is gonna be dead easy..All we want you to do is make a
Birthday Card..told you it was easy..Yesterday was our teamie
America's Birthday.. yes Americas Independance day so to celebrate
the HM team have all made an american themed card for her..
Our teamie America is traveling across the US states in a
big house move so is not able to be with us on some challs.
this is a total surprise as she dosent know what were up to...

I was sooo excited with the party celebrations I forgot to mention
our very generous teamie Sue Drees is sponsoring this chall
with this gorgeous  HM  Wishing Well stamp..

I used the stamp called Mice Cream Celebration & coloured with Prismas..
Frosted lace & Crystal stickles from HERE on cake frosting..5x7 card stock.
I printed off a d/load US flag then stuck on gold stars, mounted the image
onto red/blue card, blue gems in the corners..more D/L printed red/blue/white
striped paper & cut star shapes..metal gold star brads & gold ribbon complete..
For the photo effect I D/L & made some small US  flags,
 close up piccy below without the flags..

Some challs for this card
For Fun Challs.   Patriotic card
