40th Fireworks!

Hiya! I hope you're enjoying your Sunday! I've been crafting up a storm! Not all card making but just tinkering about with some new techniques. I went to the Make It Show in Farnborough on Friday and I always come back all inspired so I thought I would strike while the iron is hot and have a play!
I did make this card using one of the stamps I bought though. My mum was buying me a birds stamp from this range for my birthday (which I'm supposed to forget about but I'm really excited to use!) when I saw this fireworks stamp on a card on the display stand, I had to have it! I've gone a bit crazy with the embossing powder! Its quite busy but as the layout is so simple I'm entering into a few CAS challenges, feel free to discount this entry if it isn't CAS enough. I hope you like it though and thanks for looking! Oh, and this card is for my brother-in-laws birthday in May - organised huh?!

You have EXACTLY captured the feeling of fireworks on this card - that stamp is fabulous, but the fact that you used it so many times makes this background perfect! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week!

I LOVE all of the embossing. The silver and blue looks so classy. My grandpa's birthday is July 4th so this would be a great card for him! Thanks for playing in our challenge at ATCAS. :)
