CAS(E) this Sketch #13

Happy Friday!

Hope you all are having a great day! It's been a busy one for me. The past few days have been so busy that I have not had the time to play in my craft room and do some of the challenges that I wanted to this week. That's not right....

Anyway, this is my first time participating in the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge. It looks like so much fun! I loved the sketch this week and the cards the design team made were very inspiring. 

I've been playing around with one of my stamp sets I got for Christmas, Strawberry Patch from Papertrey Ink. I love anything strawberryish. I don't know if it's the colors or what, but strawberries are just so cute.  When I get a new set of stamps, I have to familiarize myself with them. I like to look at them, smell them, hold them and then make about six cards with them. Then I feel like I know them personally.  Well I now know Strawberry Patch personally. We're big buddies! :D So I decided to use this set for my challenge sketch.

Here is the inspiration:

And here is what I did with it :

As I said above, the stamps are Strawberry Patch from Papertrey Ink. The swirl is Fancy Flourishes also from Papertrey Ink. The paper was from my stash of unknown origin :)

Thanks so much for stopping  by! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

  5. What a great way to work with your new stamps, Kay. And I do believe you when you say you and your strawberry stamps are good buddies as this card is fantastic. The colors really pop and are so crisp and clean. I think I've said it before, but I am really enjoying seeing all the creations you are sharing. Your eye for design is fabulous! Curious minds want to long does it usually take you to create a card? Do you fiddle and futz a lot or do you have a design in mind that you can execute fairly quickly?

    Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring! *Ü*
