Happy Birthday Tyler!

Happy Birthday to my oldest son, Tyler.  Today he hit double digits....the big 10!  He took brownies to school to share with his class and tonight's menu was Cousin's Subs (per his request) and then a Chocolate Cake with Buttercream frosting from a local cake shop.
 Here is the card I made for him:

I used Jack from The Greeting Farm's Creepin kit and paired him up with some American Crafts papers.  For the layout I followed this week's sketch at Club Anya but turned it sideways.  This was a really fun sketch to work with....definitely will need to use it again and maybe next time I will even use it the way it is shown ;)
There are a few more challenges that I used for this card and add them later when I have a bit more time.
The Paper Variety - Tic-Tac-Toe - I chose Stamped Image/Sentiment, Make a Card, Use Scallops 
Anyone for Anya - Birthday Card
Everybody Art - "Happy Birthday"
Birthday Sundaes - "Birthday"
Really Reasonable Ribbon - "One for the Boys"
Paper Cutz - "Anything Goes"
Totally Gorjuss - "Button It"
ABC Toys & Crafts - "Happy Birthday"
One Stitch at a Time - "Something for the Boys"
Pear Tree Designs - "Happy Birthday"""
Catered Crop - I chose the following ingredients - Striped paper, mini print patterned paper, the color blue, ribbon, die cuts, circles (although cut in half) and scallops.

Thanks for stopping and have a great day!
