Birthday Card ~ A Birthday Picnic (post #2)

My second card is also a birthday card. When I saw this adorable Silhouette cut I knew I must make a card with it. It is this week's freebie at the Silhouette Online Store .
Of course what colors came to mind when I was planning this card? You guessed it the good ol' red, white and blue.
I made mine a birthday card but could just as easily be made into a party invite or 4th of July card.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Basket, napkin & ants cut from Design #44706 called picnic basket with ants.
*Basket embossed using the Sizzix Woodgrain folder.
*Sentiment from the Verve Stamps Small Phrases stamp set.
*Star and circle brads from Recollections.
*Ant trail drawn on using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen.
*Foam tape added to give dimension.

May your day always be filled with love.
