WSC #40 Happy Birthday

I've missed a couple of weeks of Beate's weekend sketch challenge.

So I knew that I wanted to get back into the swing of things this weekend.
Beate's sketch is at the right.

My take on it is below.

I have to say that I feel kinda guilty even submitting this for the sketch challenge. There's no stamping on it!!!
And the round element on the upper left just didn't work for me (as much as I tried different sized circles). Then there's the matting, which isn't exactly according to the sketch.
But since Beate's drawing was the inspiration for this card (and since I'm very happy with it), I'll submit it anyway with a big thanks for a fun drawing.
And since it's for my grandson's 10th birthday (yikes, the first one in double-digits!!!), I'm doubly grateful for the inspiration.
Materials: white cardstock (Georgia Pacific); yellow, orange, purple, silver metallic cardstocks (old, old stash); designer paper (Pebbles, Inc); chipboard (number sign, numbers) (Basic Grey); green ink (Tsukineko dauber duos); silver paint dauber (Ranger).
Thanks again for looking.

Well, this card looks far from muted! Hope your grandson liked it! Thanks for stopping my blog. I love it when I see new faces because I get to visit their blogs and see all of their talent! I love your cards, nice layouts!
