I am very pleased how it turned out. I used different Blue & Brown coordinating papers from My Minds Eye - Bohemia stack on the brown Kraft Paper. I wrapped some sew easy twine around one layer with a fun blue button to top it. The stamped images or heat embossed. The fancy square frame is in a metallic bronze embossing powder and the Happy Birthday sentiment is in a gloss black embossing powder, both stamps are from Paper Wishes Stamp and Punch Stamp set. I love this set and want to get their similar set in the Christmas style too! I added 3 small blue brads above this layer and then added a couple of pennant flags I made out of Kraft card stock off to the side to complete the sketch. I embosses those with Cuttlebug Squares from the Simply Charmed set of folders. I also inked all of the edges of all pieces with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Ink.
I am Linking this card to these fun Challenges:

The inside is a printed message from my computer on blue paper that I also inked the edges with Tim Holtz - walnut stain ink.
