Happy Saturday, everyone!  A quick CAS card today using the (CAS)e This Sketch sketch from this week:

Here we go:

LeAnne Pugliese weeInklings Embedded Hello Flower Patch

I had this Schoolhouse DSP on my desk from yesterday’s project along with a Watermelon Wonder flower that I had previously diecut using the Flower Fair dies, and the sketch seemed a perfect fit for it!  I embossed a flower on it using white embossing powder, and I had been wanting to do one of the embedded diecuts for a long time, so I finally used my Greetings thinlets to try out this fun technique!


I rarely add real buttons to my cards, but I felt like this flower needed a pretty center, so I added Very Vintage Boutique button and a little line of dots stamped from the Friendly Wishes set, and it was done!


Thanks for visiting and be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!

On Thursday, John had a little baby sparrow flying around the ceiling of his garage for almost the entire day.  It just could not figure out how to fly out the doors!  When he opened the garage door yesterday morning, it was so exhausted, it was sitting on the floor!  He picked it up and took it outside, but Cassidy and I got a look at it before he gently placed it in the flower bed.  Later on, it was gone, so I hope he got his strength back and flew away!




Enjoy your day!

Oh LeAnne, been there, done that with the little critters around our house, I'm so happy the little bird was fine, his parents probably came down to feed him.
Now, your card is so beautiful, I love how you embedded the word "hello" into the flower and your DSP panel.
Thank you for sharing.
