Big Birthday wishes

Hi everyone! I had a bit of time this evening so I made this CAS card based upon this sketch over at Freshly Made sketches.

I turned it around to be different.

Sentiment stamp is from Papertrey, Ink. I stamped it in Archival jet black ink onto the top note die that I cut out of white cardstock. I hand traced and free cut the black layer behind it...don't look too close! ;-)

Added a big of gingham ribbon and black self adhesive pearls from Kaisercraft.

This CAS card was a bear to get done! I wasn't having a bit of luck in that free hand fussy cutting on that black layer. I think I ended up doing it three times before I was satisfied.

Well, it finally got done! Thanks for stopping by!
