WSC55-Slam Dunk Birthday

I've been busy, busy making LOTS of boy cards.  Aside from my own kids's birthdays coming up, A LOTof their friends are celebrating birthdays, too.  My 10 yr. old informed me that I can't give his friends cards with "those little kids" any more....soooo I'm it's ALL-STAR to the rescue.  It's a good thing all his friends are sports fanatics....this set it perfect!
Instead of an image for the main panel, I used a mix of sentiments from the ALL STAR stamp set and BY THE NUMBERS to created a fun text panel.  I first stamped the happy birthday in Tangerine Tango and positioned the words where they would really stand out.  Then in a lighter ink, Crumb Cake, I filled in with the rest of the words.

I used the STACKING STARS die-namic along with the basketball die from ALL-STAR  die-namics to complete the corner embellishment.
I also tucked in a strip of the POSTAGE STAMP BORDER behind my main panel.  I like how it completed the seam between the two patterns of paper (Outta the Blue-lime twist, by MME).

Here's this week's sketch.  Come join the fun and play just might win a prize!
Hop on over to KIM'S Blog for the full line up of this week's inspiration with the sketch.
