CTS #284

Good morning!!  I got a little crazy over on the CAS(E) this Sketch blog and set the post to go a little early (a whole day early!) so, I hope those of you that saw it got a heads start on this week's challenge.  Ha ha!  I had a blast with this sketch and I love the cards the team created.  Don't forget to go check them out.  Here's my card:

I dug deep in my stash this week for some Papertrey Ink stamps that haven't seen an ink pad in awhile!  My color scheme came from the fun striped background paper I found while searching for inspiration.  Then, I trimmed a piece of stone cardstock down and rounded the edges for my focal point.  I used pigment ink to get the color to pop on the gray and stamped my flowers and leaves from the Ruby Rose Stamp Set.  I stamped and cut out one flower with the dies and added enamel dots and pearls for some added interest.  I finished the panel off with a sentiment in black and popped it on the card front with some foam tape.  Super easy.  Here's a closer look:

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my card.  I'll see you over at CAS(E) this Sketch!
