A Birthday Card

I made this birthday card today using What A Catch from Karen's Doodles. The sketch I used is from this week's challenge at Oh Alice. But instead of using the sketch as it is you are suppose to change it in some way. So how I change it was to cut my image into a circle instead of a square. Then I created the background with a solid piece of red cardtock instead of the two triange pieces. I used the colors from the photo at Whimsical Wednesdays. The colors are also from the challenges at Stampin Sisters In Christ (red and/or blue) and Digital Tuesday (red, white & blue). I used the baseball image for the world cup wonders challenge at Cupcake Crafts.

In addition to the challenges listed above I am also entering this card into the challenges at:
