Happy Day for Casethissketch

Hi Everyone.  Happy Tuesday.

Tonight's card is the second card I made for the casethissketch challenge this week - and it is very different to last night's card!  This one screams spring.  Very appropriate considering it got to 40 degrees today!  yep.  40 degrees.  In fact, I heard something I hadn't heard in month's today... the sound of melting snow!  It's short-lived, however, as we are expecting another 4-7 inches of snow on Thursday! 

As a reminder, here's the sketch from casethissketch


I pulled out a new SSS leaves stencil and masked off an area, as I wanted the leaves only in the upper part of the card.  I used Pear Pizzazz for the leaves - still one of my favorite all time greens!  I then stamped three flowers from the PTI Embroidered Flowers set and fussy cut them.  I added a little glitter with a gel pen and then, to add some interest to the middle, used some black Enamel Accents.  I love the gleaming black middles :-)   All that was left to do was to adhere them to the leaves using dimensionals and add the sentiment from the SU Happy Day stamp set.

Here's my card:

Happy Day

You'll notice that I went much lighter on the edge of the leaves than at the bottom closer to the stem.  I like the added interest that gives.  The Crisp Cantaloupe flowers look so pretty against the leaves.  Crisp Cantaloupe is becoming one of my favorite spring/summer colors :-)

On a personal note:

It's really late here and I need to go feed the pussycats.  I also need to finish off a few things at work, so this will be a short post.  I will be back tomorrow with a new card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.  Stay safe.

Oh, this looks fabulous! I love how you used the stencil for the leaves -- wonderful card & take on the sketch!


This is so pretty! I love how you had the leaves "fade off" and I agree - crisp cantaloupe is lovely!
