Happy Birthday

It's design team day at Delightful Challenges.  This week our challenge is to follow a sketch.  I love sketch challenges - it takes away the layout decision-making and allows me to concentrate on my images, papers, and embellishments.
For this week's project I chose "Celebration Charlie" and the Happy Birthday sentiment.  Both are available at Digital Delights by Louby Loo.  

Here's my card recipe:
Nestabilities large oval - leaving the cut image in the nestie and masking the image, I inked the oval using VersaMagic Chalk Ink.  That's how I got the white border/frame
Digital Delights by Louby Loo images
American Crafts patterned paper
Baker's Twine
Martha Stewart "Cheers" border punch
Copic Markers, Glossy Accents, Stickles, Sakura 3-D Gel Pen, foam dimensionals

 Be sure to visit Delightful Challenges to see the other designs being shared by our design team and also to enter your design in our sketch challenge.  This week's sponsor is:

This card is adorable! I was trying to figure out how you made the balloons so shiny. Sakura 3-D Gel Pens, I have never heard of them, going to look for them next time I go to the scrapbook store.

Your DT Buddy,
