Happy Birthday.....{Seize the Sketch #19}

Good Morning Everyone!
It is time for another Seize The Sketch Challenge.
Here is the new challenge sketch.....
hosted this week by Jessi!
And here is the birthday card I made based on the sketch!
Masculine cards are always hard to make~ especially kid ones so when I saw this adorable image from Bugaboo Stamps I knew it would work great with this sketch.
Using the image as my focal point, I printed it out 2 times, one to color as my main image and the other to use the balloons only to pop up for some added dimension.
After coloring him with my copics, I stamped the sentiment along the bottom and then die cut all my banner pieces.
Putting this card together was super easy and once the banners were in place, the image taped down, I popped up the balloons and added some stickles.

Supplies Used:
Paper~ Echo Park~A Boy's Life
Scraps~ white, yellow, red, green, blue
Stamps~ My Creative Time~ Springtime in Paris
Bugaboo Stamps~Kidz-Boy Balloon
Dies~ My Creative Time~Vintage Stitched Label Die
Embellishments~ copics, foam pop dots, stickles

So what do you think???
I hope you like my card and will play along with the new challenge!
Make sure to head on over to the Seize The Sketch blog to see what the other DT members created with this sketch and for all the details on how you can play along.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT day!!
