A CAS Birthday Card

Firstly, I would like to say hello and welcome to Kat,
a new follower to my blog.

Today I have a 'Clean and Simple' birthday card to share with you,
made recently for a good friend.

Using Spellbinders Oval Nestabilities, I cut a frame using the two largest dies, and also 
cut an oval with the largest die, which I used for the stamped sentiment.

Next, using the Clearly Besotted stamp and die set, I stamped two of the flower images, 
die cut them and coloured them with my Promarkers.

I stamped the sentiment onto the oval, then adhered it flat onto the base card.
Using 3D foam pads, I placed the oval frame onto the sentiment card, and then
placed the flowers on either side of the sentiment, using glue to stick them to the frame.
To finish, I added a few sequins and enamel dots.

The items I have used are:-
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Ovals
Clearly Besotted Stamp and Die set - Fairytale Ending
Sentiment stamp - free with a craft magazine

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
