Happy 17th Birthday

You will notice that I am back in the scrapbooking mode!  AND I am having some fun too!  I’ve decided to play along with the Stuck?! sketch for March for this layout.  I don’t always get a ton of photos for birthdays as the kids get older, this is my son’s 17th birthday.  Yes, he has candles on his pie as he prefers Apple Pie over cake, homemade of course!

I started with Fancy Pants Designs Carefree and Easy Going cardstock from 2013.  (Yeah using my stash!)  The notebook page is cream cardstock punched with an EK Success punch and stamped with Illustrated Faith’s date stamp in Brilliance Coffee Bean ink.  The background numbers are created with a Hero Arts Plan stencil and Brilliance ink as well.  The title is Quickutz Khaki Mini with the background fussy cut from cream cardstock, thought it balanced the color better and helped it stand out more.  A bit of red cardstock and cork by DCWV are die cut with the Spellbinders Stars dies.  Peeking out from behind the banner is a bit of burlap to complete the sketch elements.  I did add a few extra stars to (ahem) cover a few ink blunders. 

I would like to enter the following challenge:
