CAS(E) this Sketch 125...Happy Birthday

The moment I saw this week's sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch, I KNEW what I wanted to do (I had just pulled these dies out a couple days ago!)!  A pretty literal interpretation, but what fun!!  Here's my card and the sketch...

I changed the directions of the top arrows, but pretty much used the sketch as is!   I found some arrow patterned paper and turned it to face the direction of each set of arrows.  I die cut the arrows (really chevrons...Chevron Bits by Avery Elle) by positioning and adhering thin paper die cuts of the arrows, THEN die cutting to guarantee perfect placement (or as perfect as you see it:)!).  The sentiments are from a new to me set of sentiments from Altenew (what wonderful stamps!!).  The "HAPPY" was an outlined stamp, I colored with black marker and glossy accented over the word after coloring for some added dimension.  Used pop up squares to give the panels lift.  Here's a close up of all of it:)...
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
