My Sheri Crafts Challenge #113: Happy Birthday, America!

Since it's America's Birthday soon, Sarah is asking us @ My Sheri Crafts Challenge to simply create a birthday card -- something we ALWAYS need!!!

I wanted to use lavender for a change, so grabbed my Chalice Silver Royal Metallics paper for my card base, and Spellbinders' Lattice Motifs and the lattice border from A2 Bracket Borders One. I cut/embossed the motif from lavender metallic paper. For the center oval, I chose flat black CS and stamped my sentiment from JustRite's Botanical Medallions & Banners in VersaMark ink, then heat embossed in silver EP from DeNami Design and popped it up with foam tape. I added black CS underneath my lower edge's lattice border. A simple bow from ribbon I've had in my stash forever completes my CAS birthday card!

Can't wait to see your birthday cards for this challenge!!!
