Star Spangled Birthday

Wow, my children are truly growing up.  I made a card today when they were awake!  They managed to play together for the whole time.  I won't say quietly, but they didn't need Mommy.  I really wanted to get one more entry in for the Friends of Speedy TV challenge this week since they have the most gorgeous set of vintage car stamps up as a prize and I know that they would make amazing guy cards.  I'm really hoping you're allowed to enter more than once.  I needed to keep this simple since I was worried I'd get pulled away at any moment but I also wanted to try something a little different.  This is a window card using the mini birthday set from Marks Finest Papers.  The DP was from my Costco pile. I thought I would never use this paper being Canadian but I'm down to my last piece.  Go figure.  This will be a fun card for one of DH's friends.
