CAS on Fine Linen

I struggle with CAS style cards, but keep trying to perfect the skill. Maureen has a fabulous inspiration card - see smaller photo - that we were to CASE for the SCS challenge today. The DP, button and lace trim are all from Flourishes April 1-2-3 Create Kit - Primo Botanical and I love the colors! The base CS is Fine Linen by PTI...a color that I forgot I even had! Sad, isn't it, when you have so much stuff that you can't remember what you've got! Anyway, I LOVE this new fern die from Spellbinders' Foliage set! I chomped the corners and used the Seeing Spots EF along the bottom of the card. I love having blank sentiment cards on hand so I can add whatever I need on the inside as the occasion pops up. It's good to see the sun out today after a bad weather w/e. We had a tornado touch down about 5 miles from our house on Saturday and there were lots of trees downed by the 95 mph wind! We had 2 drowning victims in our town - people who ignored a barricade and slipped into the rushing water. So sad, but a reminder that seemingly shallow waters can be dangerous with a strong current. Happy Monday to all!

Well done on the case and I'm loving that fern. Glad to hear you are safe and sound too!
