A Simple Birthday Card for CAS(E) This Sketch!

Happy Monday!  I don't know about you, but my weekend was just crazy busy.  It's almost like Monday is time to get back to normal, ha!  Never thought I'd say that!

Anyway, yesterday morning, my hubby tells me, "Hey, it's my brother's birthday next weekend and I bought him a present - since you're going to be seeing him later today, do you think you could make a card to go with it?"  So I got to work, but whenever I think I'm going to do a quick, simple card, I overthink things and then it takes waaaaaay longer than it should...Whatever, I got it done, but if I were to go back and do it again, I would probably back that die cut banner with some white cardstock just so it would be a bit more legible.  

I used this super great sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch, which made the placement of my circles and enamel dots easier - again, overthinking tends to lead to overwhelming! 

Even though this card didn't turn out exactly as I'd hoped, I'm still happy with it, and I think I might make some more, just in case I have a manly birthday come up on me unexpectedly again!
