Birthday Card For A Few Challenges

Good Morning!! I am home today from Church with a sinus cold/headache. I thought I had managed to go without one this winter but low and behold it snuck up on me. I am very glad that it happened this weekend and not next because next weekend I am going out of town for my Birthday!!. Speaking of birthdays I have 5 birthdays this month to celebrate!! The card that I made is for the little boy my mom and I babysit. He will be 2 on the 22nd and is the only boy we have in our daycare. I had all the cuts ready for the card but was stumped as to what I wanted to do with them. When I saw Terry's blog post A La Card Monkey and saw that it was there 100th challenge and it was a sketch I thought that's it I will use the sketch to create the card!! Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:

What I Used:
B Is For Boys: Robot cut at 2.5"
K Andrew Designs Art Stamps : Owl Hoo "Happy" "2"
                                                     Coffee & Tea For You & Me "Birthday"
My Creative Time : Hello Spring Set  "Egg Die For balloon"
Momento Ink:Tuxedo Black
Black Gel Pen

Owly Hoo Buy HERE

Coffee & Tea For You & Me Buy HERE

When I first saw sketches I didn't really have an interest in using them. When I entered the Peachy Keen sketch challenge I realized I loved working with Sketches, it makes things alot easier!!

I am also entering this card into 4 other challenges:
