Sketchy and Sporty

Here's a birthday card I created using one of Allison's So Sketchy layouts, I pulled out my "Just So Sporty", which I know I will be using a lot this spring and summer! :) (wait til you see the cards I made for Jonathan's soccer coaches!!)
I began the card looking at the circles on the side of her sketch and decided to take them literally: a figure 8! There's lots of 8 year-old birthdays coming up soon around here so I thought ta big 8 on the side instead of framing images up in them would be pretty cool, and just to make sure everyone "got" the 8 (hee hee!) I added a jersey with the number "08" on it! I love having the numbers in the set to use this way for birthdays. The sketch was perfect for a little banner and I completed it with a bard in a star, and few lines of piercing just up to the 8. The jersey is stamped on red paper and the trim is colored with a white Koh-i-Noor pencil.

I just love how by it looks, thanks Ally for another great sketch! Be sure to go check out the original sketch on her blog! Have a great day! PS This also works for Cammie's color challenge this week on Stamp TV, I hope you'll play!
