CAS(E) This Sketch

I needed a birthday card for a girl who is turning 18 soon, and this CAS(E) This Sketch layout was a perfect way to get it done! I couldn't resist using this Cake Creations stamp set from Ink To Paper (formerly Papertrey Ink). The matching dies make it so nice not to have to fussy cut all the many images! The diagonal stitched background is a cover plate die from Reverse Confetti and adds an element of texture to the card.

The sentiment was gold embossed on heavy weight vellum to coordinate with the matte brushed gold cardstock used in the design.

STAMPS: Cake Creations (Ink To Paper).
INK: Green Parakeet, Spring Moss, Simply Chartreuse, Lavender Moon, Plum Pudding, Bright Buttercup, Summer Sunrise - dye inks by Papertrey Ink; Memento Tuxedo Black; Versamark.
DIES: Cake Creations (Ink To Paper); Stitched Diagonal Cover Plate (Reverse Confetti).

It's a rainy Saturday and I'm slowly getting my house back to normal mode after the holidays. A few non-Christmasy snowmen remain out, but otherwise things are packed away. Thanks so much for stopping in!                                               ~Wanda
