CAS(E) This Sketch 315

Today we've got a great new challenge for you at CAS(E) This Sketch designed by our friend Nathalie.  I was SO tempted to use a butterfly on my card (you'll understand what I mean when you scroll down and see the sketch).  But I resisted! 

I resisted the butterfly because I saw the beautiful colors at the latest Cupcake Inspiration Challenge and thought I had a hydrangea stamp in my stash that I could use for that big focal image.  Turns out the stamp I was thinking of was a dahlia but it worked just as well!  It's a three-step stamp so I used two shades of blue and one shade of purple to create dimension on the image.

I used vellum for the die cut leaves so that I didn't introduce another color into my card and I love how they look.  The vellum gives this a delicate look, I think.

Thanks for stopping by.  It's no surprise that my CAS(E) This Sketch teammates have made some spectacular cards with this sketch so be sure to check them out.  I hope you are inspired to join us in the gallery!

Your choice of colors made this Dahlia the perfect stand-in, Jen... oh so beautiful! LOve that your lines don't go to the edge of your card base - quite a statement! xx

This is beautiful, Jen! I'm like you, I would want to NOT use a butterfly, although I'm keeping that butterfly design idea in my bookmarks! I love that you used your pretty dahlia (hydrangea) and how you created the leaves from vellum!! Hugs, Darnell
