Birthday card using the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder and gel pens

I loved all of the black cardstock I've been using with the chalk look, so I thought I would make a birthday card like that.
I used the cut line settings to change out all of my colors.  I have a tutorial on this here... Sparkle card
I like to do things in a row, say brads, buttons, or even this Viva Décor look.  But lining them up just right is near impossible, and I thought, why not draw some circles that are all spaced out, then the work and guessing is done for me?  So I did!  I used the Target brand up & up gel pens in the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder to draw on black cardstock.
This was super easy in Studio, I just drew a line where I wanted my circles to be, used the rhinestone feature (1), chose the edge feature (2), chose the size rhinestones I wanted (3), and then spaced them further apart (4).  Voila!  All the guess work done for you!

Then I filled all of the circles in with Viva Décor.  This stuff is awesome! I've had it awhile.  The difference in this is when it dries it is still 3d! 
The font I chose is called Vintage One.  I also made a rectangle around the inside of my card and changed my line style settings to be dashed.  I also added a stylus to my Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder to score the fold in my card.  You can see how I did that here... score tutorial
