Betty, do you have any sort of big flourish set? If so, you could do the flourish with a smaller starburst-type image to evoke fireworks, and add a 'Yay!' or 'Hooray' with an alphabet set.

To illustrate, here's something along those flourish-y lines that I did as a quick any occasion card with SU!'s Baroque Motifs; I always thought that, using a different color combo, the flower image would look like fireworks, especially if it were heat embossed in silver or gold. . .

Good luck--and be sure to tell us what you came up with!

No flourishes as yet. Had a phone call from DD that totally changed our day/evening too. Will get at the card first thing in the morning.
I do have Fiskars embossers things and am using In Colors, scallop circles, primas. will put in my gallery when it is done.
Thanks for the help!
