"I can't believe I forgot this" adventure

January 1 was my great-nephew's first birthday, and I forgot!  I can't believe I forgot, but there it is.  I needed a special card, and I've saved these  stamps for just this kind of occasion, but I needed a sketch, quickly.  A lot of the challenges I follow are on holiday break, but the sketch from Stick It Down was there to get me started:
stamp sets - Elebration (retired), Number of Years (retired), Balloon Adventures (retired, on envelope); ink - Basic Gray, Crushed Curry, Pacific Point, Emerald Envy (retired), Tangerine Tango (retired); Aquapainter; Stampin' Write markers - Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point, Emerald Envy (retired); Stampin' Blends - Smoky Slate light & dark; card stock - Crushed Curry, Watercolor, Emerald Envy (retired); designer series paper - Animal Party (retired)

I made some changes to meet my needs, but I think you can see the "bones".

I really like this sketch and wanted to use my new Stitched Stars dies, but the stamp set wouldn't fit.  I'd like to use the sketch again, with products you can still purchase.  Speaking of products you can still purchase, today is the LAST DAY for many of the items in the Holiday mini catalog, but tomorrow an entirely new mini catalog will be available, with lots of wonderful new things!  And, returning to the subject of things I forgot, evidently I've forgotten to restock my birthday cards, and the last two are going in the mail next week, so I had best get busy.
