Birthday Guy

Hi and welcome!  I took a bit of time over the weekend to make a card for a few challenges.  I used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch; I'm playing along with the Masculine theme at 4 Crafty Chicks and I'm also linking up to Seize the Birthday.

I grabbed this NBUS set and colored up this gentleman with his gift then fussy-cut him out.  I created a simple scene behind him using a curved die for the grass and a cloud stencil for the sky.  The sentiment was stamped onto the card base and the "you" was die-cut from black cardstock.  I got a couple of blotches of ink where I didn't want them when I was stenciling so I added the balloons to cover them up 😄

I'm not so sure this is CAS as there is no white space left, but I'll enter it anyway.

Thanks for visiting.
