It's Your Birthday! Sail Away!

Hey Hey Hey, what do you say? If you say sketch, then, you're in the right place! LOL  Oh well, even if you don't say sketch, you can still be in the right place!

I'm sure you're all familiar, by now, with the Stella Says Sketch challenge, at Catch The Bug! If you're not, OMG, where have you been hiding?!  It's the new challenge at Catch The Bug, sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.  We provide you a sketch and you create a fabulous project, link it up with us, and have a chance at fabulous prizes! Head over to Catch The Bug to see the current sketch challenge and see the fabulous inspiration from the DT!

My project today uses the new sketch from our Stella Says Sketch challenge.  I've made a male birthday card using masculine colors.  The image is Critter Balloons - Elephant, from Bugaboo Stamps.  All papers used are from my stash, as are the pearls.  I used a grey border punched with a Martha Stewart border punch. The sentiment is by Sentiments 4 You, punched with a circle punch.  Then I punched out some gray shapes and layered them under the punched sentiment, to make a decorative border.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
