Black and White Birthday

This is my second card today, so if you get notifications via email, please scroll down for my first card.

It's been a while since I've been able to play along with CAS(e) This Sketch and CASology so I combined both challenges to come up with this card.



I started by sponging a black strip down a piece of white cardstock, but one of my masks let me down, so I had to cut out the black strip and stick it to another piece of white.  I only sponged on a diagonal to add some interest.  The flag is stuck to the card base using dimensionals.

The sentiment flag is a sponged piece with the sentiment white-embossed over the top.  The center of the sentiment flag is popped up on two dimensionals while the outsides are flat to the card - again to give it a bit of dimension.

A candy dot above and below the sentiment finished the card. 

Thanks for looking.
