CAS(E) this Sketch! An African Violet Love You!

It's time for a new sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch!  I actually had a ton of ideas for this one!


I ended up keeping it fairly simple and also using one of the Pantone Colors from Jackie's Pantone Fashion Color Challenge - African Violet.  I'm not much into purples of any variety - but I like the soft look of this card.

CTS Love You

I hope to see you play along with this one!

This is beautifully created with those inset diecuts! I love every shade of purple from light to dark, and I think this is simply delightful!
