Challenge: Birthday Wishes for a Boy

I am playing along in this week's Seize the Birthday Challenge. The challenge is to make a Masculine Birthday Card using this sketch.

I missed the first live challenge last week which is sad, but I am back with a really nice project to share... And here it goes...

I thought out of the box by re-arranging the elements of the challenge sketch.  And I think it really worked here! Lucky me! :)

I used an adorable The Greeting Farm image from the OA-Just For You rubber stamp set. I paper pieced  Oliver's bonnet and inside shirt.  The rest of the image I coloured with my Copics.  I mixed and matched sentiments from PTI and the sentiment that came with my TGF image.

The papers were sent by my crafty friend Stacy H-W! They were perfect for this project! :)  The shapes were cut with MFT dies.

I punched holes and added brads on the corners of the rectangular piece of paper for some added detail.

So, what do you think?

My project also fits this week's Farm Fresh Friday - Punch It challenge over at the Splendid Stamping blog.

It's me,
