Happy Birthday card, wrestling style!

Happy New Year!  I can't believe how fast 2016 flew by.  Crazy, isn't it?  Today I had the day off from work for MLK/Patriot's Day.  I planned to get a whole bunch of cards made, but only managed to finish one.  My nephew's birthday is thursday and I HAVE to get this in the mail TOMORROW!  Thank goodness I already sent him is present since the card most likely will be late.  Darn!  Anyway, I needed some inspiration today so I checked out some blog challenges.  I already had the theme in mind which is wrestling.  I have some stickers to use and just found a sketch that I thought might work.  I used the MOJO Monday sketch #480 found here here.  

I also decided to join in with the "Seize the Birthday" challenge blog found here.  It is their "welcome back" for a new year post.  The theme is a birthday card "anything goes".  YAY!  I think a wrestling birthday card is in that category!

Now for the details.  I basically followed the sketch pretty close.  I used some reddish speckled cardstock from my stash (no idea who the manufacturer is) and also some white, black, slate and black chevron patterned cardstock from CTMH.  The stickers I used are from The Paper Studio Stick-a-bilities.  They are labeled "Wrestling Cardstock".  I die cut circles using MFT Blueprints #18 dies. The greeting is from MSE (My Sentiments Exactly) called "Innies & Outies".  I stamped it on the white circle with Slate ink from CTMH.  The also added some gem stars from my stash.  And there you have it.  I sure hope he likes it.  Thanks for stopping by.
