CAS(E) this Sketch! Love & Kisses

It's time for a new sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch!!


I had a few stamp sets set aside from my NBUS stash (Never-Before-Used-Schtuff) that I wanted to use during the Valentine season.  The Avery Elle set that I picked today actually has sentiments outside of the love sentiment - it has a thanks, birthdays, proud of you and a bunch more...but I particularly like the way the "L_VE" stamps is laid out.  Avery Elle also has dies to fill in the blanks (thus the name of the set - "Fill in the Blank" - but I found this button hiding in some very old stash and liked its texture.

Love & Kisses

The banner is layered up on three cuts from Smokey Shadow.  I like how it sets it off from the white. 

I'm sure you will enjoy this sketch - I hope to see you playing along!!
  • Stamps: Avery Elle Fill in the Blank
  • Paper: Papertrey Ink Smokey Shadow, Echo Park Head Over Heels 6x6 dsp
  • Ink: My Favorite Things Electric Red
