Freshly Made Sketch #234

Happy May Day!
Today I needed to get a card made and ready for the mail tomorrow.  It's a birthday card for my nephew who just happens to be a gymnast.  Do you know how hard it is to find masculine gymnastic stamps?!!!  I found this stamp from CTMH and thought that I could make it work.  I also needed something to help me get some mojo going.  I found this sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches that would work perfectly with this stamp set.  Here is a link to the challenge:
The gymnast stamp is from a set called "Play Hard - Gymnastics" from CTMH.  The greeting is from the stamp set called "Beyond Awesome"  also from CTMH.  The inside matches the front and says "birthday" with flash marks around it.  I stamped everything with Black (CTMH) but stamped the gymnast several times without reinking.  The greeting is colored with a CTMH Shinhan alcohol marker in Carmine.  The strip of pattern paper is from the CTMH Magical paper collection.  I just used black cardstock from my stash to mat the pieces. And there you have it.  I sure hope he likes it.  Thanks for stopping by.
