A Sketchy Sketch Birthday Card!

I seriously can't believe I have not used this stamp set before today!  I have avoided it as it is what I call "Too Scritchy Scratchy" or in normal words it is a sketched style of stamp.  I had a left over (we call them rejects here) piece of water coloured cake from my last gift card & thought...what the hell lets try & use it.

I have always wanted to join in a Sketch challenge & figured why not have a crack at the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge 59.  (Seriously can I say Sketch one more time?...I think I might.)  So for my 1st ever challenge entry I chose some bright & fun colours with the Birthday Basics DSP.

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card! I turned the sketch on it's side for something different because that's how I roll ;)   

 You can see I used the Petite Curly Label punch & layered them on the 1" Square punch.  That is the 1st time I have used that punch since Sale-A-Bration so go me for using it again!
