Birthday card and DT call

Hello folks, it's Sunday again and that means it's time for another OSAAT (One Stitch At A Time) challenge. The theme for this challenge is "Boys to Men" and you have to make something for a male. We're sponsored by the lovely folks at SEWNTogether stamps, and the winner will get to choose five digital stamps of choice from the SEWNTogether store.

And, OSAAT are having their first DT call! With the blog growing so quickly and summer approacing, we'd like to set it up so that our DT only have to do alternate challenges, rather than every week as we do now. The blog challenges will still be running every week, but the DT will alternate. If you fancy joining in with this lovely bunch of ladies (not me so much, I'm a grump, but the rest of them are wonderful :P) see the OSAAT blog for details. :)

Now, onto my card. I've chosen to make a birthday card for a young boy, and I used Miki in Helicopter. The blue patterned papers come from my "My Little Guy" paper set, which is available in the Stitchy Bear store.

These are the challenges I'm entering:
Friday Sketchers - followed the sketch
Incy Wincy Designs - for the little ones
Color Chef Challenge - light blue, dark blue, red and white or cream
Die Cut Dreams - celebration card, must include a number
The Pink Elephant - use bright fun colours
A Spon Full of Sugar - celebration
For Fun - male card
Tellen's Place - use two patterned papers
Simon Says - Fathers Day or male card
Dare U2 Digi Stamp - red white and blue
Theme Thursday - bright colours
Stampin' B - card for a male
Crafty Ann's Challenge - Fly the flag (use the colours in your national flag, in my case the Union Jack and red white and blue)
Stamp Something - Digi
Drunken Stampers - Birthday card
