Happy Birthday 21

This card is for my grandson's 21st birthday who was born on July 3rd.  We always tried to celebrate his birthday separate from the 4th of July, but that didn't always happen.  However, this birthday is a new milstone for him, and he should enjoy all the 4th festivities and celebrate all week with others responsible for driving.  Again I have combined Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #113 and the ColorMyHeartColor Dare #148 Challenges to create my card.

Again I didn't have any paper matching 4th of July theme so I made my own backgrounds using 3 strips of Daisy White cardstock and stamped chevrons using Outdoor Denim and Cranberry inks.  I layered each Chevron Strip with the opposite cardstock color, and placed on 5 x 7 Daisy White cardstock.  The center spin wheel was stamped with Outdoor Denim, fussy-cut and then layered and and again fussy-cut with red cardstock, adhered to card with 3D Thin Foam Tape.  From Cricut Cut Design Space created "21" with text, welded and cut and placed on spin wheel. The rockets were in my stash, fussy-cut and adhered to card with a double layer of 3D Thin Foam Tape for additional dimension.  The Sentiment was stamped with Outdoor Denim and design around sentiment with Cranberry Ink, layered with cardstock and adhered to Card.

Perfect for the AHSC challenge. The rocket ships are a clever substitute for the obvious choice and I like the textured look of your self-made DSP. Your grandson should be very pleased with the card.
