a CASE and Seize the Sketch


Hi friends!  I know it's late but I had to stop and share this card I made using the latest Seize the Sketch.  When I attended the winter CHA in January, I got to meet so many blog friends.  One of them being Lesley Croghan.  We were both Top 5 in the Gallery Idol contest last year and she was so fun to finally meet in person!

Well, this brings me to tonight's post.......I saw a card she made on Instagram and I fell in LOVE, I tell ya!  Serious love.  So much that I had to CASE her card.  Lesley....thank you so much for inspiring me with your gorgeous card!  You can see it HERE or over at the current Seize the Sketch blog post.

Here is my card using all Verve goodness.  Love the Poppy Birthday stamp set and matching dies!  I also used one of my all time favorite dies......the Pennant Trim Die.  Here I've just cut out 4 pennants.....so you can make them as long as you want!  I die cut one and then placed it back in the die sliding it over to just die cut how many I wanted.....this way the "other end" has a finished look too!  The final touch was adding in some sequins from the Pastel Mix by Verve
