Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Red, White & Blue

It's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge, and this week we want to see the colours:

'Red, White & Blue'
 Our sponsor for this challenge is:

and the prize is a $20 voucher to spend in their online store!

I've used one of my oldest (and most favourite) Penny Black stamps on my card...the ever faithful...'Birthday Dog'. For the background, I embossed plain card using my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' and 'Spots & Dots' folders....edging the red layer with a white border cut using my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Cupcakes' set by Hero Arts...I cut them out using Nesties, then added some red, white & blue twine to make them look like balloons.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
