CAS(E) this Sketch! That's How We Roll!!

It's time for another fun sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch!  This one has a nice little vignette.


The frilly oval and the bird in the graphic took me to a vintage look - or at least my version of vintage!

How We Roll

Isn't that a cute die?  I needed it like a hole-in-the-head, but it just jumped into my cart, so I had to use it before it got tucked away and quite possibly forgotten.  I do have to admit that it is a little bigger than I imagined it would be - it's not going to be easy to tuck in as embellishment - so I made it the focus!

I look forward to see what you all create.  My favorite part of my card making week is browsing through the incredible variety of cards that are linked up at  CAS(E) this Sketch!

LOVE the bike die - and I'm thrilled it landed in your cart because the resulting card is GORGEOUS! I'm adding the bike to my wish list for sure. Colours, layout, sentiment - winning combination! Hope you're having a great Thursday!
