CAS Birthday

Hello everyone. Here is my take on this weeks Freshly Made Sketch. I kept this one very clean and simple.

I think I did the sentiment banner on this three times because I kept smearing the ink. The flower is stamped on the Xpress it paper, which is smoother for Copic's, and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Ended up having to do that with the sentiment in order for me to finish off this card.

Flower stamp is from Hero Arts and the sentiment is from Papertrey, Ink. White cardbase and red pure poppy cardstock is from PTI.

Stitched dies are from My Favorite Things.

That's all for today. Thanks for popping in.

This is so striking and elegant, Laurie! All that white space, clean lines, and deep red, yummo! I'm sorry it gave you some trouble, but in the end, it's perfect!! Happy Holiday Hugs, Darnell
