Happy Birthday

Today's card was created for the latest Can You Case It sketch challenge. CYCI is celebrating their 3rd birthday and they are celebrating with a black tie event. They offered two options: black, white, and elegant (which I opted for) or black, white, and fun. 
I started with a white card base and layered on a piece of black cardstock from Hobby Lobby. I then stamped my focal image image using the Stampin' UP Thoughts & Prayers stamp set. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin' UP Curly Cute stamp set. Using a Paper Smooches stitched die I added some stitched lines to the focal panel. I cut a piece of black and white patterned paper from Recollections using another Paper Smooches die and adhered it to my card base. I added a few clear rhinestones from Recollections to the tree and the sentiment and brushed on a bit of clear Wink of Stella for a bit of shimmer and shine. Happy birthday CYCI...I hope you like your card!

Celeste, I've never seen that tree image before, but I love it. Paired up with that DSP, it looks a little like underground roots from the tree. Very elegant!

Thanks for joining us this week at CYCI!
