CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #113

Hi my lovely readers!  I have to start this post with yet another apology!  This time it's to say, sorry, I mislead you in the last post . . . my course didn't start then . . . it starts on the 16th March, so, another week yet!

I think it's because I'm so excited about taking it that it was wishful thinking on my part . . . or, to face facts . . . my age!  ;)

Anywho, today's offering is for the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #113 and this is the sketch

And this is my card

First I used my PTI embossing plate to emboss the card front, then I ran a piece of card through my cutting machine using one of the stitched rectangle dies from Lawn Fawn.

Next, I stamped the flower using Clearly Besotted 'Flowers & Flourishes' with Clearsnap Colorbox pigment inks and the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black. and mounted this panel to the center of the card base, using fun foam (Jennifer McGuire's genius idea)

I finished off by punching out three little flowers from some coordinating cardstock and sponged the edges and put a little gem in each flower center and mounted those to the side of the stamped panel.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit my little blog and for any comments you leave, they are all greatly appreciated and I do reciprocate where possible.

Have a lovely day!  Hazel xx
