Joint Challenge: Cas(e) This Sketch & Runway Inspired Challenge

This week at CAS(E) This Sketch, we are teaming up with Runway Inspired Challenge
to give you a sketch and an inspirational photo.
Your challenge will be to combine both to make your card.

Here's the  Runway Inspired Challenge photo & Sketch #73 by Joni Andaya:


Now, I love the red, blue and white flowers on the model's top,
so I decided to have some fun with heat embossing over patterned paper
with my Chickaniddy Crafts Date Night stamp set.


I stamped with versa mark onto my Echo Park patterned paper and heat embossed
my flowers in red and my leaves in white.
I fussy cut them out by hand.
I cut a piece of Crate Paper Love Note patterned paper with my circle cutter, adhered it to my card stock base and trimmed it to fit my card.
I stamped my sentiment (from Reverse Confetti's Beautiful Banners)
and layered everything over some teal cardstock.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch 
& inspiration photo and to play along, if you'd like.
And, stop by the the Runway Inspired Challenge blog to see what their team created with them, too.
It's a two week challenge, so you have until Thursday, May 1st to link up your card.

Before you go, I also have a post up over at Reverse Confetti today for the Confetti Camera series!  
I'd love for you to check it out!  


Thanks for looking!
