Everyone has something to celebrate.

 Here's a bright, shiny card to brighten up your Wednesday.

I found this digi image of cute Chinese lanterns with sentiment on the Avery Elle blog (it's a freebie). I printed it twice so I could cut out and pop the lanterns.  I also cut the sentiment from the image so I could place it below the lanterns.  The green and yellow CS pieces are scored on all 4 sides.  Yeah, top and bottom scores don't show on the photo - sorry.  The glittery piece behind the orange frame is a scrap of vinyl Elaine shared with all of us at card class.  Thanks, Girlfriend.  

This card follows the sketch and is my entry for the current Avery Elle AEI 'heart' U August Challenge.
I'm also submitting it to these additional challenges:
Digi Darla's Challenge #76 - Birthday Celebrations
Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #185 - Song or Quote  (Celebrate Good Times by Kool and the Gang)
Ooh La La Creations Challenge - Inspired by a Song (Celebrate Good Times by Kool and the Gang)

Ooooo .... it's getting pretty dark outside for 10:30am.  Hope DH doesn't get too wet on the golf course. 
Come back again tomorrow.  My grandsons are coming later this afternoon, so I know we'll be crafting.  They really enjoyed the marshmallow toothpick buildings we made last week.  At least they enjoyed the marshmallows!

Hubby will definitely be wet!  It is pouring, big time!
