CAS(E) this Sketch Guest Designer

Hello, hello!

I am so excited, because today I have the privilege of being a guest over at CAS(E) this Sketch challenge blog.  I love their fun CAS sketches, every one of them is inspiring!  I encourage you to check out their sketches here.  The newest sketch this week is by the lovely Karolyn.  I have to admit, this card took me foreeeever.  Usually that is not the case with CAS cards.  ;0) It was totally worth it though.

For my card, I pulled out my FAV flower stamp set of all time, Fresh Cut Florals.  I also used a bit of Country Charm and Strictly Sentiments 2.  I started by cutting a panel of Oatmeal cardstock, and stamping my background in brown ink.  I then added a strip of orange cardstock and stamped my sentiment.

I took the largest Timeless Two Die and impressed a woodgrain pattern onto it.  I secured some pink Divine Twine to its hole and used foam tape to secure it to the card.  I then added die cut, stamped flowers and put pearls in the centers.

Here is a look at the sketch:

I hope you play along!  We can't wait to see what you make!
