Happy Birthday Dude!

Hi everyone! I made this birthday card using this great new image from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. It is part of  the Wild And Crazy Guys stamp set. I colored this image using Spectrum Noir pens.  This was my first time attempting to do a sky background on my image.  I used the cloud template from Netty's Cards and a light blue ink pad along with makeup sponges to create the sky.  This was also my first attempt at adding grass.  I followed the grass tutorial by Melanie Holtz found here.

I used the sketch from Sketchy Colors.

 
 I layered card stock and patterned papers to finish the front of my card.  The sentiment I used is also from the Wild And Crazy Guys stamp set. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
