CAS(E) This Sketch 214

The calendar says spring but someone needs to tell Mother Nature!  We started out this first official week of spring with some beautiful weather and warm temperatures (warm for Massachusetts in March, I mean)!  But then old man winter decided he needed an encore and came back with cold weather plus lots and lots of wind.  Temporary, I am sure, but enough already.  Bring on spring for real!

For real, though, we've got a great new sketch for you at CAS(E) This Sketch.  It put me in mind of lots of leafy die cuts so that's the direction I went in.

And the colors this week at Color Throwdown gave me an excuse to dig into my stash of Baja Breeze card stock!  There's a die cut challenge at AAA Cards too so I think this qualifies there as well.

My teamies at CAS(E) This Sketch have interpreted this sketch in some beautiful ways so be sure to check them out.  I am sure you will be inspired to join us in the gallery!

Thanks for stopping by!
