A sketch challenge for CTC#279

Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge CASEING the CATTY.

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit, and we love to CASE our amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues which are full of inspiration.

Our challenge this week is to CASE a sketch of the card on page 72.  Welcome if you have just arrived from the lovely Monique.  Make sure you keep hopping around the whole team to see lots of amazing projects inspired by this sketch!!  

I have used this sketch as my starting point to make a heap of thankyou cards for my customers!!  And this card is the first play that I have had with some of the new goodies from the NEW MINI catalogue that goes live from the 4th August!!  Woohoo!!

This stamp set called Life is Beautiful is so pretty.  It has a lovely tree and then a choice of leaves/foliage so suit many seasons!!  I've used the super cute layered dots in Seaside Spray combined with Night of Navy.

The card front has been embossed with one of the lovely Greenery embossing folders, and the thankyou greeting comes from Many Mates - this is a really super useful greeting stamp set!!  

Inside the card features some more of the lovely spots.

The final lovely addition is the gorgeous Blue Adhesive-Baked Gems!  They are soooo pretty!!  Make sure you check them out in the new Mini catalogue!!  

Up next on our hop this week is the wonderful Peta!

We love it when you join in the fun with us!!  Add your project to the lineup on our Facebook Challenge page before next week and share your project inspired by this great sketch!!
