AAA Cards Challenge #109 - Die cuts only

I wanted to create a card but I ran out of ideas so I was checking Pinterest and found a challenge on

CAS Game #109

The rules for this challenge: 
We're looking for CAS cards that feature die cuts as their main and focal point. We will accept the addition of a stamped sentiment, but not stamped images that have been die cut. 

As always our definition of CAS means that white space should not be patterned, embossed or textured.

I never participated in a challenge but I thought it would be fun to make a die cut only card.

I started with a card base of 10 x 14 cm. I used a stitched rectangle die to 
die cut a piece of 9.5 x 13.5 cm and adhered it on top of the card base.

Then I created the swirly circles of the SU Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies and the small flowers of Marianne Design CR1323.

Finally I stamped the Happy birthday sentiment of SSS Birthday Messages with Versafine on a paper strip that matches the color of the card base.
