Circle of Congrats

Hi, here I am again with a card for Freshly Made Sketches and this week I am the sketch hostess.  This is the simple sketch I came up with.

To match the simple sketch, I created a simple card.

A lot of the subtlety in this card is lost in the photo, so I'll give you a brief description.  The white layer was dry embossed with the Subtle embossing folder before being die-cut with an embossed edge rectangle die.  I used a smaller embossed edge rectangle die for the pink patterned paper strip.

The congratulations circle die was die-cut 3 times and stacked before being spritzed with shimmer spray.

After I put the card together, I decided to add a stamped sentiment so carefully stamped inside the stacked die-cut using my Misti.

Thanks for visiting.  I hope you'll play along with the sketch and check out the fabulous cards made by the rest of the design team.

Fabulous sketch and I love your interpretation, Karren! Using the 'Congrats All Around' die for your focal point was such a great idea and I love your embossed panel! Love those B&W stripes, too...Awesome card!

Wow! This card is just amazing! I loe that die cut and love your patience to cut it out three times and stack them! I'm amazed how you get them to line up so well. I would probably not have the same success!!! Thank you for the best sketch this week!
