Thank you

I love the layout of the sketch at CAS(E) this sketch 141 and thought I would have a go.

I don't think I've done a sketch before and I am hoping that I stayed true enough to the sketch for this to be accepted. The blue panel I cut out with a die. The piece of blue card stock I had done a while ago with someone showing me how to stamp with a  word background stamp in distress ink, then blend the same ink, then use an embossing folder to add the leaves and berries then add a bit more of the same ink to the lifted section that had been embossed.

I'm so glad I kept the piece and used it this way. after die cutting I added silver embossing powder round the edge.

I used decorative circle stamps from a Uniko stamp set and silver embossed them. A white die cut 'thank you' from Penny Black which I felt worked perfectly and finished off with some sparkly silver dots.

Very minimal for me but I really liked the end look. So easy to do once I decided on the piece for the main die cut and which circle stamps to use.

I would like to get this in again just in time to the CAS(E) this sketch #141

Didn't think I would make it home intake to make this from mum and dads but as you can see by the skin of my teeth I made it.

Thought I would also enter this in Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - no designer paper
certainly no designer paper there.

Thank you for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

Thanks for your comment on my flowercard! This is a great panal; love the rounded corners; they fit so well with the rounds in the back!

Brilliant take on the challenge and I like the way you tied in the silver embossed background with the edges of the die cut piece. Superb.

Hugs, Sarn xxx
