Happy Birthday America.......{Challenge Card}

Good Morning!!!
I wanted to pop in with a card that I made to enter a bunch of challenges! With the 4th of July just days away there are tons of awesome Red/White and Blue challenges going on that I so want to play along with!
So using the new Mojo Monday Sketch
The Colors from the inspiration photo over at The Pink Elephant and playing along with my friend Stacey who is celebrating her birthday with a fun linky party..
Photo Inspiration #17 
I came up with this....Hope you like it!!!!!
I started with a Kraft cardstock base and added my layers of designer papers, following the sketch,  using Little Yellow Bicycle~Vintage Summer papers. I did add machine stitching to my mats (well all except for the circle...can not sew in a circle for the life of me) just for a more finished look...plus you know me...I love my sewing machine....LOL!
Then using the adorable Lollipop Firecracker Finn from By Lori Designs I colored him using my copic markers and added some yellow stickles to his firecracker and diamond stickles to his shirt. I ended up die cutting a star using my Cameo and adding a star button and some Totally White Trendy Twine as my extra embellishment.
Finally for the sentiment I used a stamp set that has been sitting in my stash forever... 
My Pink Stamper~Yankee Doodles.  I just recently found it while cleaning out my crafty space....bonus!!!

Well there you have it!! I hope you have enjoyed my card! 
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT Tuesday!!!
Don't forget to stop back on Thursday for our

I am so excited to share my project!!!!!
