Color Hues #44 and NBUS #40

The new Color Hues challenge gave me an excuse to break out a NBUS stamp set and change direction on a birthday card for my grandson Ryan, whose birthday is today.   Have you heard?  The entire Design Team is playing cards with Michele (I Card Everyone) for a red and blue challenge. 

I got the fireworks on clearance at MFT a while ago.  I don't usually make 4th of July cards but I thought the set would make a great masculine celebratory one.  I stamped and clear heat embossed most of the elements, adding Sparkling Snow embossing powder to some.  Using my WaffleFlower A2 dies, I cut borders in red and blue and added a sentiment from MFT. 

I'm also sending this to the lovely Darnell's NBUS challenge.  Actually it's her birthday today too.  Have a happy day, Darnell.
