Dominican Countdown-5 Days

Only 5 days left!  I can't believe how fast the time is going.  I started my malaria pills today.  They are different and I only have to take one a week for 6 weeks. I'm so glad I don't have to take them with me on the trip.  We are way too busy to have to worry about remembering to take a pill!

Easton was invited to go celebrate his friend Brett's birthday with him on Wednesday, so I threw together this fun card for him.  The sketch is from retro sketches.  This is one of my favorite challenge sites because the sketches are so clean and simple!
I wanted to fill in all of that white space at the bottom with something, and decided to do white-on-white with numbers.
I love how it turned out!  I shared here how to make the medallion behind the "5."  It's super easy and great for a little boy card! I didn't have a sentiment that fit great on the banner, so I used my markers to color in the "happy" from Up, Up & Away and then the "birthday" to place them side by side.  On the stamp, they are actually stacked.  I love using my markers to be able to do things like this!
