CAS(E) This Sketch #71

Today, I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #71 by Gayatri Murali:



With this sketch, I decided to make a chalkboard card, 
using my Wplus9 Valetine Wishes stamp set.

Here's my card:


 I stamped the images and sentiments on some PTI smokey shadow card stock 
in Versamark and heat embossed them in white.
I stamped a trio of flowers and heat embossed those in sweet blush, 
to match my background card stock.
I inked the edges in black and then added some white ink to the centre of the wreath to mimic 
some chalk.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch 
and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Thursday, April 10th to link up your card.

Thanks for looking!
