Sweet Sunday Sketch 202 {celebrating 13}

Wow! Seemed fast didn't it? The Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge has gone back to a weekly sketch. I'm trying to stay ahead of the game so these don't sneek up on me.  It's week two and I'm doing pretty good. 
I needed a birthday card for our neighbor. He turned 13, so pulled out a bunch of my Reverse Confetti stamps and had fun mixing and matching the words, numbers and sentiments. 

Here is my card:



Papers are, once again, from the Hey Kid paper pack by Pink Paislee. I cut a rectangle from Kraft cs and did some tone on tone stamping with the stars from Inner Rock Star. I love creating subtle backgrounds this way. 



I then stamped the birthday sentiment from Lots to Say in Steel Blue ink and added the word celebrate in Red Hot ink from Celebrate Cake


I was excited to remember that Lighthearted Letters also included numbers!!! I was able to stamp the year 13 to my double layered circles. A few stars and sequins finish off this festive card. 

Check out this week's sketch HERE.

Be sure to stop by Karen's Blog for all the Challenge details AND the link up. I can't wait to see what you all do with this week's sketch. 

Need some inspirations??? Check out what the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team has done with this sketch.
