Stamp Something - Celebrations

The challenge at Stamp Something this time is:
Use Red, White and Blue
OR
Sparkle
OR
Celebration theme
OR
all of the above
Sponsor is Simon Says Stamp

I am using a stamp called Bart's BBQ and two sentiment sets: Whimsy Birthday Letter Seals Set and Whimsy Party Mini Letter Seals.
I coloured the image with watercolours using wet-in-wet method. The clouds are stippled on with gouache paints but acrylics would give the same effect. I also used white gouche paint slightly diluted with water for highlights.
The papers are from Basic Grey Life Of The Party pad. The orange glitter maatting is made with Papermania glitter strips and all the papers are eged with orange Stickles. Sparkly enough?? lol

Thank you so much for visiting and happy crafting!
Hugs
