Another Thank You...

Good Morning Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July and are taking today to relax a bit before it's back to real life on Monday!

This morning's card I made for the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #130 and I really like the way it turned out!

I started out with a card base in navy blue and then cut the bottom of the front off with one side of a large Sizzix label die. This left me with a shaped bottom edge that I attached a piece of kraft cardstock to for a finished card front.

I cut the leaves with a die set from CC Designs that I think is now retired and then drew in some veining with a VersaMarker... love that thing!

The flower is by Stampin' Up and cut out with the matching punch... I added just a tiny bit of Fruit Punch Stickles to the center of this one too... I really like that color and I think it was either a limited edition or it's retired now too so I'm hoarding it :)

Finally, I used a small "thanks" die and cut it 3 times from the kraft cardstock. I layered all 3 on top of each other to create some dimension and then covered the whole lot in Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents to create my own embellishment piece... so fun!

It sounds like there's a lot of steps in this one but it's really pretty simple to make and could be done in all sorts of color combinations for just about any season and I'm really starting to like cards with just a bit of hand-drawing in them!

That's it for me today. Enjoy your Sunday all and I'll see you again next week!
