CAS masculine

Hey everyone. I've been wanting to use this image from PRIMA for a while and when I saw the latest CAS(E) this Sketch layout #30 I was very drawn to combine the two. I might use this sketch a LOT more in future because I have so many more ideas for it.
 I flipped the "ribbon element area" to the top and used a larger image that overlaps the sentiment panel:

I first held the sentiment panel down by hand when I stamped the balloon. After that the panel was adhered with foam tape. I made 8 of these (for men's birthdays in July at church) and had to make sure that I kept each panel with it's background balloon so that they will align up correctly.
Sentiment: Papertrey Ink Think Big Favorites #12
Stamped in Tim Holtz Fired Brick & Memento Tuxedo Black
