CAS(E) this Sketch 144

CAS(E) this Sketch 144 is a fun one from N@ Ali.

Here's my take on it.

I went pretty literal with it--again!--and I'm calling this a "deconstructed lei".
I used the smaller flower element from Blueprints 12 and die cut the flowers
from a scrap piece of watercolored stripes.

I popped them up on a kraft card base that was stamped with a woodgrain
background using Versamark ink. The sentiment is from Polynesian Paradise,
and I couldn't resist a bit of spattering with some white ink.

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, October 15th
and you could be guest designing with us on a future sketch!
