Rash of Birthdays

There are a few months in the year where there are a ton of birthdays in my family.    March and April are two of those so I am concentrating on that theme right now.
I think this digi image and sentiments by  From the Heart  make for a cute birthday card with a little humor thrown in.

I not only used the Stamp of the Month digi which I received from From the Heart, I used the sketch from their weekly challenge blog.
A few years ago, one of my daughters gave me the Celebration DCWV stack.  I love it.  Lots of fun birthday paper, textured paper, some pages with metallic accents.   That is what I used on this card - textured and metallic.  It is going to a son-in-law so the base is Kraft which helps keep it masculine.
Banner is cut with a die cut (MFT, I think).  Image is colored with Prisma pencils.
