CAS(E) This Sketch #161

*Note: This is my second post for today.
Please scroll down or click here for my Papertrey Ink Blog Hop post.

Today, I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #160 designed by N@ Ali:


Since I don't have any balloons in my stash (crazy, right?),
I decided to add the next best thing to my card -- a flamingo!


I stamped the sentiment from Lots to Say onto my card front.
And then, I stamped my flamingo from Fabulous Flamingo.


It looked a little unfinished to me, so I added a bit of watered-down pink ink
with a paint brush to add a watercolour effect.
I also added some Golden Glitz Delicata ink to some Pretty Pink Posh wooden stars
and added them, to finish off my card.

I'm also linking this up to this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.


 

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, March 3rd to link up your card.

Thanks for looking!

No balloons in your stash, Leigh? I have way too many which made me think I wanted to do something else for the challenge. Your flamingo is a great something else and fills the sketch just fine.
