Kolby's Birthday Card

A birthday boy will be turning 9 years old pretty soon.  I used CPS #172 Sketch.  All I did was turn the sketch on it's side. The color combo I thought was perfect for a young boys card.  It came from Diva Coffee Break Designs Challenge #182.   I embossed the number 9 with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.  I got the idea to give it dimension from   Allsorts Challenge #58 - they asked for embossing - it was a perfect idea.

I was going to use die cut alphabets for the happy birthday and then I saw that Pile It On Challenge #24 wanted stickers to be used and I thought yea.. I bet I have a Happy Birthday sticker.  I have tons and after going through them I found the perfect one.  Same color combo pretty much.   The last two challenges I'll enter the card in will be Sew Many Challenge #19 - Anything Goes , Charisma Cardz Challenge #25 - For the boys and Polka Doodle Challenge #25-  boy's birthday



Well I hope he likes it but then he's 9 I am sure he will be more interested in what's in the wrapping than what the card looks like.  That is fine with me cuz he is a great kid.  Love him lots.  
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE!

P.S  NOT ONE STAMP WAS HARMED OR USED IN THE MAKING OF THIS CARD!.. LOL.. HAHA
