CAS(E) this Sketch 75


Here's CAS(E) this Sketch 75 by N@ Ali.


And here's my take on it.


I made a skinny card and used ink distressed, water spattered scraps for the
banner and heart. The white embossed sentiment is from Technique Tuesday
and the die cut is from Simon Says Stamp. Some spattered white paint finished off the card.


Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how my teammates interpreted the sketch,
and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday, May 15th.


Can you see how the banner is attached to the card base? It was my first attempt
at hand stitching and I'll be entering this card in Virginia's View Challenge #3--Stitching.
I used a thick craft thread so I needed a needle with a big eye, but it gave my card big holes!
I kinda sorta like how it turned out, but I think I'll stick to faux stitching.

Thanks for stopping by!
