I used the newest sketch from Freshly Made Sketches which you can see on their blog here. I love their CAS style sketches. They're great for jump-starting a card design.
It's a very simple design and came together quickly, except for the paper piecing, which took time to cut out. Several of those pieces are quite narrow! I used some pretty patterned paper from Basic Grey's Knee Highs line.
Inside the card, I used another narrow strip of patterned paper and stamped my belated birthday sentiment. (since my card is, you know, over two months late)
So happy with this card! I hope my sister really likes it. Of course, it will help that a present accompanies it. lol :)
