Hip Hip Hooray!'s your birthday.  Wanted to share this card with you that I created for my grandson's 19th birthday.  He is currently in Groton, CT attending his submarine schooling, hence the anchor.  This card was made following the sketch this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  It was a fun sketch to work with.
The papers are all from the K&Company Americana stack.  I got it on clearance at Micheal's and with two grandsons in the Navy it sure has come in handy.
The stars, frame and anchor are all cut from the Stand and Salute cartridge.  The border across the bottom I cut using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge and added a small strip of Dazzles.

The frame and the stars I covered with Crackle Accents and am pleased with how it looks after it dried.   I did not cover the center where the silver star shows through.
The anchor I covered with Liquid Glass and then wound some chain like ribbon around it.
For the inside I did it very simply, stamping the rest of the verse inside.  The stamps are from the CTMH Card Chatter - Birthday, it is a great set as it has verses or outside and inside.

Well I want to thank you for stopping by and I would love it if you left me a comment I love reading them.
