Seize the Birthday - A Sketch Challenge

Happy Thursday everyone.  It's time for a new challenge over at Seize the Birthday and  this week we have the "toppings" option to follow a sketch.

I turned the sketch sideways and made a masculine birthday card.  My card base and the white circle are MFT Smooth White CS.  The brown is SU Soft Suede.  The blue stars are punched from SU Baha Breeze.  The DSP is from Recollections Bold Basics.  I used SU Decorative Dots EF on the Soft Suede cross piece.  I used MFT Pierced Circle die and Circle Stax 2 die for the circle panels.  The sentiment from Verve's Birthday to You is stamped in SU Soft Suede. This panel and the punched stars are mounted with foam tape.

I am also linking my card to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - It's A Guy Thing.
