Birthday Cheers !

     Here's my card for this month's Progressive Challenge at Sasayaki Glitter and it's perfect for adding one more birthday card to my stash which was getting pretty thin.  :-D

     Before I even started coloring, I decided I wanted a very simple design.  I colored with ProMarkers and cut it with a die from Spellbinders.  The sentiment is cut with a Cheery Lynn die.  I cut three of them and stacked them together for a bit of dimension.

     The sheer ribbon was a left over piece from another project and I added one of my signature, hand-sewn bows.  That bow was white but I 'dyed' it navy blue with a ProMarker.  Lots of open space for a CAS design, even if the space is blue instead of white.  :-D
