A Simple but Difficult Card

Here is one of the sketches this week at RAQs Challenge on the Cricut message board.

 Now it may not look like it is difficult, but trying to make that cut on the right hand side using your Cricut was a challenge, at least for me it was and a few others on the Cricut MB.  And because I am generally pretty annual about following sketches, it had to be right on for me.  So this is what I finally came up with.

The papers are from the DCWV Black Current stack.  This has to be one of my top 5 stacks, that I love.
The "difficult" cut, after struggling with it in DS and CCR trying to use shapes from George and Plantin Schoolbook I finally...............used an envelope cut from Sentimental cartridge and just cut the flaps off, it gave me the best dimensional shape that I was looking for.  Sometimes I guess we just have toi think outside the box!
I Cuttlebugged the edges using some of the border folders.  I added a black and silver button to match the sketch.  The happy birthday is stamped and heat embossed.  Well sure hop you like my card and thanks for stopping by.

Don't forget to check out my Blog Anniversary giveaway at the top of my blog, there is only two days left.
