PTI Paper Crafting Alphabet Card

There's a big celebration happening over at Papertrey Ink for their 9th year anniversary, and today's special challenge is to use the first 3 letters of one's first or last name to create a card using the elements assigned to those letters. I chose to work with the elements that go with the first 3 letters of my last name: S = stitching, real or faux (I used a stitched rectangle die); H= heat emboss an image or sentiment (I heat embossed the fireworks and stars); and E= incorporate an emboss resist technique (I watercolored over the heat embossed stamped images)
Papertrey Ink sets used: "Red, White and Blue" stamp set, "Birthday Cheer" die set.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
