CAS(E) This Sketch 259 Meets Fusion

Thursday, February 15, 2018

Hey all!  It's time for a couple of new challenges.  We've got a great sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch and at Fusion there is a great spring time inspiration challenge.

I love how this card turned out.  At first I was a little stumped by that long vertical layer on the sketch until I went searching through my stash and found this grungy banner-type image.  I also knew that I wanted to add some floral images in shades of pink to mimic the inpiration photo and a day or so before I sat down to make this card I saw that someone on the Splitcoast Stampers buy/sell/trade forum was looking for the Funky Floral stamp set from Papertrey Ink.  I was pretty sure that I had that stamp set but wasn't sure what it looked like so I took a look at it.  Turns out it is one of my faves and it's on my "never get rid of" list.  But more importantly, seeing it put it forefront in my mind when it came time to make this card.  Who needs new stuff when I've got plenty of old stuff I can use!

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is looking for a die cut.  I've got that with my little leafy sprig so I've got that covered too!

Thanks for stopping by!  My teamies at both CAS(E) This Sketch and Fusion have got some fabulous cards to show you for these challenges so I hope you are inspired to play along!

Stamps:  Funky Florals (Papertrey Ink); Hello Hello (The Stamp Market)
Paper:  Solar White (Neenah); Wild Wasabi (Stampin' Up!)
Ink:  Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose (Stampin' Up!); Smokey Shadow (Papertrey Ink)

You did a great job combining challenges, Jen! I love your grungy banner and your funky florals and sprigs are the perfect CAS elements for both sketches! Way to go using your older stash, too...frankly I wouldn't part with that stamp/die set either :)
