Birthday Card Sketch Challenge

I made the following card based on the sketch above- Sketch 262- from My Favorite Things. You have until Jan 12th at noon to play along if you'd like!  I made this card for my Dad's birthday coming up the end of this month. I'm going to Raleigh, NC, today to meet my sister at David's Bridal for a wedding dress fitting and since my dad lives in Raleigh as well I decided to give him his birthday present early. I bought him a #1 Dad coffee mug from TJ Maxx- work. I always get him a gift card and the coffee mug is cheaper and can be used as many times as he likes. Anyway, back to the card. The card base is Recollections A2 cards. The 4 strips are from American Crafts Dots & Stripes 6 x 6" paper pad, the Happy Birthday stamp is from Close To My Heart Remembering Your Birthday, and I used VersaFine Onyx Black Pigment Ink to stamp it. The sticker is from my stash- I lost the original packaging. The blue background paper is from Authentique Paper Gathering 6 x 6" paper pad.
TFL and have a great day!
