Sweet Stampin' - stars & stripes

Happy Saturday :o)

I'm here with my DT card for Sweet Stampin', where our challenge for this week is 'stars & stripes'.

Morgan asked me for a card for his friend... now it's very easy to be unintentionally embarrassing to those teenage creatures, so I ran the image past him first, and I was also worried whether putting the age on was a no-go, but apparently that's ok too.  The finished article was deemed 'perfect'... high praise indeed coming from any male really, never mind a teenage one lol.

Items Used
Stamp - Oliver Kicking About - LOTV
Colouring - copics
Papers - Magical Adventure + Dots & Stripes - Echo Park
Number dies - Birthday Party Fun With Numbers - Crafter's Companion
Sparkle on numbers - Nuvo by Tonic Studios Aqua Shimmer (actually sort of showing up in the photos for once!)
Sentiment - Paper Smooches
Gems from my stash

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Allsorts - a question of sport
Simon Says - anything goes
Cardz 4 Guys - stars

We're off for a walk now as it's really lovely out... it's been a very wet week, but the rain has stopped, the sun is shining and it's not too warm (I don't do hot weather!).

Thanks for popping in, hope you're all having a lovely weekend :o)

PS. the photobucket nonsense all over my blog is due to my blog background... I had it designed years ago and the person who did it must have it all stored on photobucket which is now charging for that purpose.  Not really sure what to do about it, so might just end up taking my background off altogether if I can't get it sorted!
