Think Pink Flowers - And Leaves


Penny Black have started a new game called Play Along.  For their first game they are playing along with Runway Inspired Challenge.  Here's who's on the runway:

This week's CAS(E) This Sketch has lined up perfectly for what I wanted to do:


Eventually.  I had just finished making a version of this card with the happy horizontal (let's face it, horizontal is a happy place to be) when the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge was posted, and I just had to combine the two challenges - look, the flower on the sketch is even leaning like the model!  So I made another card nearer to the sketch - just flipped the main part of the sentiment to run up the left instead of down the right of the flowers.

Stamps: Penny Black: 40-103 Delicate Florals, 3682C Birthday Girl (masked)
Happy die: Memory Box
Sequins: Neat and Tangled
Coloured with Tombows

Inlaying die-cuts is my latest new trick.  New for me, not my idea.  And I've just thought of another card for another challenge using the inlaying thingy, so I'm off to try that before it goes out of my head.
