Patriotic birthday

To celebrate the third birthday of the Splitcoast Fan Club, SCS is hosting a week of challenges for all Fan Club members. It started this past Wednesday and continues until Tuesday.
I have checked out the challenges each day, but this is the only one I have completed so far. I look forward to doing a bunch more, when I can fit it in... This challenge was a sketch from Julia S.
This card is also for the July Wish-RAK card contest, to create a birthday card with a red/white/blue color combo using an image received through the Wish -RAK group. What better time to use this little patriotic chick, right? I colored the image in using a blender pen. I put stickles on his sparkler, it looks so cute in person. On the inside of the card I stamped, "Hope your day really sparkles!". Now I'll just have to wait until next year to give this to some lucky person with a July birthday, LOL!
Stamps: Stampendous Calendar Chicks, SU It's Your Birthday, Karen Foster snap stamps (inside)
Paper: Brilliant Blue, Ruby Red (SU), stripe pattern by Doodlebug Designs, star pattern by The Paper Studio
Ink: Basic Black, Brilliant Blue, Ruby Red, Summer Sun, Only Orange (all SU)
Other: Stickles, button, paper piercer
