Cas(e) this Sketch #85


Today, I have a card to share that I made for


I started with some aqua mist card stock and a We R Memory Keepers
journaling card that I die cut with my Papertrey Ink Life is Beautiful die.
I die cut some white card stock with my PTI double-ended banner die 
and stamped the sentiment from Life is Beautiful.
For the flourishes on the sketch, I stamped the flourishes from Reverse Confetti's 
So Very Special -- which I stamped several times to outline the butterfly.


I curved my banner when I adhered it to the butterfly.

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, July 24th to link up your card.

Thanks for looking!
