Freshly Made Sketch #51 Numbered Birthday Card

I am really enjoying Freshly Made Sketches designs because  I like the clean lines and simplicity of them.  When I need to make a special card (like the one below) they are easy to follow.  Kudos to their designers!  This card uses all Close To My Heart products: Pemberly paper, Sunset CS, Honey and White Daisy.  Since we are allowed to use any shape for the focal element I wanted to embellish it by using a fancy cricut cut from the new CTMH Artiste collection.  This is a 5" by 6.5" card. The medallion was found on page 42 of the Artiste handbook--letter W accent 4 cut at 3.25".  The Sunset base is 3.5".  The numbers and Honey circle were cut at 1.75".  I applied Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel. and Durable Studs as the final accents.  This card came together very quickly and I love how it turned out!
