CAS(e) This Sketch #47


A great sketch this time around and I could not resist playing with all those left over pieces of patterned paper from yesterday!  You can find the CAS(e) This Sketch Challenge HERE.


Again,  no stamping.  That pack of Echo Park papers came with numerous stickers, which I will never use, so I decided to make use of the Alpha stickers for the sentiment.  The butterflies were made using a Martha Stewart punch.

I'm also going to add this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is "Anything Goes" and you can find it HERE.

I recently went to our annual Garden Show, and although I am not a flower person, (they just make me sneeze and my eyes itch ), I was totally amazed at how talented people are.  Here is a little collage for you to admire (just click on the photo to enlarge):

Top Lt: this was a Rose display (obviously not a real Peacock)
Top Rt: different states got to put in a show of their own.  Beautiful Proteas on display.
Bottom centre:  this is the one that left me breathless!  I've been to Kirstenbosch Gardens in Cape Town, at the foot of Table Mountain (the back side), and they recreated it here!  I literally felt like  I was actually there the way they blended the real flowers in the foreground with the photographed backdrop!
The other two photos I just thought were beautiful arrangements and the wreath made me think of a fellow cardmaker, Anita

Wishing you an awesome day!
