Cardabilities Sketch

Cardabilities
Sketch #58


Here is my take on the sketch...


 It's an All American birthday card!  I needed a July birthday and and being so close to the 4th of July, I went with a red, white and blue theme.  I made my own pinwheel out of a square piece of DP.  It's really easy to do, too!  It started out as a tag and I decided to turn it into a birthday card.

Come on over to Cardabilities and play along with us.  Check all the other designs, too! It's a really fun sketch and we can always use a tag...for gifts or on a card.
