Happy Birthday For a Special Guy!

I made this card for my grandson, Josh.  He's all grown up and graduated from college and I couldn't be more proud of him.
For this card I started with a base of blue card stock and added some patterned papers from my stash.  I cut the pennants and the ovals with my Silhouette Cameo and the curvy strip is die cut.  I added 3 brads and strung the pennants on some hemp twine.
 I used the sketch from the Made Especially for You sketch challenge which was a great help to me in creating this since I really had no idea where to begin for this card.  Here is the sketch.

 And here is the card I made.

  I want to enter this card into their challenge this week.
