CAS birthday

 I've had these pre-cut card blanks for several years and have never used them.  Mostly because I like to start with a sketch and no sketches ever fit this.  But this week I finally found a sketch that worked and I have to say, I will probably be using more like this in the future.  I love how it turned out.  Nice a CAS and girly. : )  The oval was already cut out, so I started by laying my banner strips on top and then trimming them out from the back.  Then I stamped the sentiment  and a flower that just peeks through.  It needed something else, so I added a stitches stamp and than three pearls.  Here's what the inside looks like when opened.
 And here is the card and the matching envelope.  I stamped the same flower from the card onto the corner.  It's faint, but you can just see it.  No items from my bits and pieces stash were used, but the banner strips were all scraps I had been saving for "something".
