A Little Note...CAS(E) this Sketch #73 and Runway Inspired #58

Gahhh....I didn't realize that CAS(E) this Sketch #73 closes in 23 minutes, so you get a break from my chattering!  Good heavens - time management and organization skills required!  At least I was awake enough this morning to check...whew!!

I brought out my stencil and 'embossing paste' - aka polyfilla - for this card I'm entering into the combined challenge of CAS(E) this Sketch #73 and Runway Inspired #58.  The latter is a first time challenge for me...



This time, the circles/dots on my three images stencil received attention....

Brief post done, now rushing off to enter (talk about an early morning workout!).   Wishing everyone an excellent May 1st....already...

Thanks so much for stopping by; your visit and comments make my day!!

  2. I'm so glad you entered this challenge Carol. I adore Runway Inspired Challenge and had lots of ideas swirling round my head when I saw the inspiration photo/sketch, but I just never found the time to get anything done for this one. Really love your interpretation. So clean and crisp. stencilling on just half the card works brilliantly…..gorgeous butterflies and love the backing die - it just all works together brilliantly xxxx
