Challenge card For Cas(e) that Sketch

Time for a challenge.  My New Year's plan was to just stay on schedule.  I spent all day working on my personal blog and after filling up the garbage, decided that I was just not going to make that card.

I moved over a sheet of paper from the latest kit, and immediately had the perfect idea for a card.  Next step was to find a challenge that would work.  Not the easiest way to find a challenge, but I did.

Here is my card:

Sketch #203 from Cas(e) this Sketch:  here is the link to the blog spot

Pretty close.  I used the paper for the flowers.

Lets see  how I made it:

Start with the paper:  Kit is Color me Happy, from Club Scrap January 2017 collection.  The kit also comes with an amazing silver pen.

Fussy cut out one of the swirls.  It is the one in the lower left corner.  Then placed in on an A2 card base and adjusted the size.

Next I too k the silver pen and added more dots.  This close up shows how well the pen matched the paper.

Last step was to create a sentiment.  That was the hardest part.  Thought about Calligraphing the sentiment with the silver pen , but! I did not want to practice or waste my paper.  My previous project wore me out!!!  So I stamped and embossed, and stamped and embossed again and finally settled on Ranger Silver Embossing Powder and a die cut.

See all the dots! I think it is perfect example of clean and simple as well as elegant and fits the sketch.

Until next time,
Happy Crafting.
