CAS Colours & Sketches #263 - Sketch Challenge

I loved figuring out what to do with Fiona's sketch for this week CC&S Challenge.  The idea of a sentiment in the middle took me to my collection of word dies.  The word happy, from W Plus 9's Happy Trio die set uses four layers of paper using "Stick It" adhesive to give it dimension.  MFT's Label Maker stamp finished off the birthday part of the sentiment.  From there, I decided to stamp the corners with flowers from my Banner & Wreath stamp set from Avery Elle.  Three ivory matte sequins finish off the card.

Hope you will find time to stop by the CAS Colours and Sketches Blog and add something to our galley this week!
