CAS(E) this Sketch #111

Hi everyone.  Hope you all had a great weekend.  Weather here in Somerset was not brilliant with lots of rain and wind but intersperced with some sunshine and blue skies.

Thought I'd pop by to show you the card I've made to enter the latest CASE(E) this Sketch challenge.  

Here is the sketch:

As you can see from my card I switched the sketch around and came up with this:

There is also time to enter this card into Addicted to CAS Challenge #57 where the code word is MASK.

I stamped the flower from my Clearly Besotted  Friends Forever set using Versamark and then white embossed it.  I have the matching set of dies to go with this stamp set so I cut a mask for the flower and then I die cut another mask using a Die-namics Pierced ovals die.  I placed the flower mask over the stamped image and secured the negative of the oval die mask over the whole piece.  I then inked and stamped my SU En Francais to give a background to the flower whilst leaving an oval edge.  This was then die cut using the Die-namics oval die and I left that in place and sponged over some colour.  I've used the same set of dies for my sentiment which is from SU Ovals All (luckily they fit perfectly) and die cut two banners with the Die-namics Banner dies using b/p from my stash.  I then added some faux pearls using Liquid Pearls (they look really dark but are, in fact, green).

Thanks for popping by.

Happy crafting.
