My first SAB creation

I didn't preorder any SAB stamp sets, so this is the first time I got to play with any. I just got my order that I placed on the first last night. I didn't have time to play with them until this morning after my dentist appointment. I had to play with them because I have a birthday party on Sunday in Indiana. I had to stamp today because I was leaving for Indiana after my dentist appointment. Also in my order was Basic Gray cardstock and Basic Gray classic ink. I really wanted to use it and since I needed to make a masculine card I thought it would work. It's muted, but I like it. I stamped the cake from Birthday Whimsy in Basic Gray on Whisper White. I stamped it again in Not Quite Navy on Whisper White and cut out just the cake. I mounted it on top of my Basic Gray cake with Stampin' Dimensionals. I layered that on Basic Gray and layered again on Not Quite Navy and added it to my card base. I stamped my balloons twice, too. Again, one in Not Quite Navy and one in Basic Gray. I cut them out and mounted them on my Basic Gray card base. The Basic Gray one was popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. I drew the strings for the balloons with a black gel pen. I'm not thrilled with how the strings turned out, but there was no turning back at this point. I stamped "happy birthday" in Basic Gray and "....and many more" inside the card. I stamped the present on my envelope and left for Indiana.

Have a good weekend everyone!
