Creative Sketches "Sketch plus Holiday Challenge"

Good morning bloggers and welcome back for another exciting challenge at http://www.creative-sketches.com/.  This week your challenge is to follow the sketch below and add a holiday theme to it.  It can be any holiday you want.

I decided to make mine a 4th of July Birthday card.  I know there alot of birthdays out there that are either on the 4th of July or at least close.  I don't have any firework stamps, so I used my resources and used some snowflakes stamps that would work perfectly for fireworks.  What do you think??
I am also going to enter this card into challenge #12 over at http://whimsicalwednesdays.blogspot.com/.  Their challenge this week is to create a patriotic card/project and you must include Brads, Bling, or Buttons.  I have done both.  Let me know what you think.  I always love to get feedback on my creations!

This is such a lovely card. You did a great job using those stamps. They totally look like fireworks. Really like your ribbon and the edge punch used on the matting. Nice job!

What do I think of your fireworks...AMAZING! How clever! I love when someone thinks outside the box and makes something with what they already have...perfect! The papers, the punch and the ribbon... spot on! Thanks for playing along with us again at Whimsical Wednesdays!
