Birthday Card ~ A Birthday Surprise {2nd Post}

I started my card by printing off this cute image.
Next I cut him out with the oval die and framed it up with another oval.
I handmade the banner, die cut the scalloped border and alternated circle cuts inside the border.
I added ribbon under the scalloped border from one side to the other and then added little pearls to the circle centers.
The sentiment came from a new stamp set I just received today in the mail.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Clark Present digi image from Whimsy Stamps (Lia Stampz collection)
*Banner cut by hand.
*Scallop border from the Scallop Trim Trio Die Set from Verve Stamps.
*Sentiment from the Small Celebrations stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Ovals from the Classic Ovals Small & the Classic Ovals Large die sets from Spellbinders.
*Copic markers Y28, YG67, B24, E00 and E33.
*Pearls from Zva Creative.
*Ribbon from Offray.

May your day always be filled with love.
