cas(e) this sketch #117 & Light It Up for Autism Awareness Blog Hop

Today, I have two cards to share that I made
using some Reverse Confetti goodies.

First up, I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #117 designed by Lesley Croghan:


I decided to to rotate the sketch and make an easter card.


I had lots of fun paper-piecing the sweet little chick from Carton Cuties with some Crate Paper Open Book patterned paper on a piece of white cardstock that I diecut using the journaling card frame
from Documented Confetti Cuts.
The sentiment is also from Carton Cuties.
I added a Pretty Pink Posh mini-clothespin to hold the diecut and patterned paper together.


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 9th to link up your card.

And secondly, I have a card to share for the
Light it Up for Autism Awareness Blog Hop
that I'm participating in today.

There are so many fantastic sponsors that have shown 
their support for Autism Awareness and you can see the complete list here.
If you would like a chance to win a prize from one of these fabulous companies,
leave a comment on here on my blog and on any of the other blogs participating in today's hop!
Winners will be chosen at random and will be announced on Monday, April 6th.

The theme for the hop is blue.
I decided to make a baby card for the hop.


I created my card by layering a panel from Quick Card Panels: Spring Fling over
my white and aqua cardstock panels.
I stamped my sentiment (from Folded Tag Sentiments) onto a coordinating Folded Tag Confetti Cuts.
A trio of buttons with twine finish it off.

Here's a close up:
