CAS(E) This Sketch #162

Today, I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #162 designed by N@ Ali:

 
I decided to use my new Papertrey Ink Spring Woods stamp set to make my card,


I started by blending some Harvest Gold & Bright Buttercup (PTI) and frosty pink & cotton candy (Altenew) inks to blend onto my background panel.
Then, I used my new PTI Colour Pop stencils to add the flowers and leaves.

 
I diecut the birds and leaves from Spring Woods and stamped them with the coordinating stamps
-- these are so fun! -- and added the sentiment.
I diecut the bottom of the white strip using a Pretty Pink Posh stitched border die.

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 10th to link up your card.

I'm also linking this up to Darnell's NBUS Challenge #6,
because this was my first time inking up my Spring Woods stamps
and using my new Colour Pop Stencils.


Thanks for looking!

I'm another one who passed over this stamp set, but after seeing your card Leigh, it's in my cart for this month's release. Your card is o soft and Spring like looking. I think we're all thinking Spring at this point with pastel colors and flowers!
