Besties Birthday Card

My son celebrated his 21st birthday on a naval base in Pensacola Florida. It is the first birthday we have not celebrated with him:(

I found a contest on the Besties website that ends today. I hope I got this in time. Sherri came out with some really cute images with a Wizard of Oz theme. Since Eric is away from home, I chose the image that resembles Dorothy. There was a spot at the end of the movie (if I remember correctly) where Glenda tells her click her heels and say "There's no place like home." I wanted to incorporate that idea. I also wanted to do a patriotic theme since he is in the Navy. This is what I came up with. A CAS card with no bells or whistles since he probably won't keep the card anyway.



The only glitz on this card is Stardust and Waterfall Stickles. The flag stamp is from Sparkle and Sprinkle. The image is from My Besties Oz collection. The birthday sentiment is from The Scrapbooking Queen. The dies were all from Spellbinders and Lifestyles Crafts. The images were colored with copics and inked with Memento.

Here is a link to the My Besties contest and the other challeges I am entering:

Gorgeous card, fabulous colour choice and such a sweet image. Thank you for popping in to visit and leave such a lovely comment. The silicone moulds I use are from Martha Stewart and I use her air dry clay to create my embellishments. I hope that helps.
