Carried away with CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge # 112

There's a new challenge over at CAS(E) this Sketch and I had a bit of a play yesterday and made not one, not two but THREE cards!!!!  Here is the sketch:


and here are my cards:

For the first one  I have used my Sue Wilson Expressions Die - Enjoy.  I used a combination of blue mirri and a light green cardstock and die cut the sentiment.  I then played with adding (paper piecing) the die cut sentiment back into the negative aperture in different colours.  The sentiment was added to complete the card and I mounted it on a piece of dark green card.  Sorry I don't know the make of the sentiment stamp but think it came free with a magazine.

For the second card I used Tonic partner sentiments die set and used a combination of plain red cardstock, embossed red cardstock and some glitter card (although I don't think it shows up very well in the photo).  I added the heart which came out of the sentiment to the top of the card.

For my third, and last, card I have used my Memory Box Grand Happy Birthday die - very simply cutting it out of cream card and laying a piece of d/p behind it.  I added some gold gems and that was the card finished.

Thanks for popping by.  Hope you're having a great weekend.

Happy crafting.
