Cas(e) This Sketch #81 & Fusion

*Note: this is my second post today. Please scroll down or click here
to see my Chickaniddy Crafts Card Sketch post. Thanks!


We're so excited to be partnering up with Fusion this week at CAS(E) This Sketch!
Here are the combined challenges...


I was inspired by the colours and the sparkle & shine
from the inspiration photo to make my card.


I started with some Heidi Swapp patterned paper as my background.
I diecut my banner using the end of the largest tag from Reverse Confetti's Tag Me 
from vintage cream cardstock.
I stamped some leaves on the banner using Wplus9's Spring Floral set 
and heat embossed them in seafoam white.
Then, I stamped the flower (heat embossing it in seafoam white as well) and the centres in gold.
The leaves are stamped in classic kraft.
I fussy cut this out by hand and adhered it to my banner.
The sentiment is from PTI's The Sweet Life.

Here's a close-up so you can see all of the shine:



Visit CAS(E) this Sketch & Fusion to see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch 
& inspiration photo and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Thursday, June 26th to link up your card.

Thanks for looking!
