CAS(E) This Sketch #226

Hello, all! =) A new sketch is up over on CAS(E) This Sketch! First is this week's sketch.


Here is my card.


I tweaked the sketch a little to fit the image that I used. =)


The adorable image is from Purple Onion Designs' new Once Upon A Time Collection and the image is called Book Plate. I altered the image a little by not inking the frame and used the image alone as my focal point. The image is stamped on PTI's Rustic White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut using a Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX die.


The patterned paper is from American Crafts' Dear Lizzy Saturday 6x6 paper pad and the sentiment is from the Great News Sentiments Set also from Purple Onion Designs.

That's all for now. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created for this week's sketch and see all the challenge details over on CAS(E) This Sketch! =)
