CAS(E) this Sketch 145...Happy Birthday Flower

I couldn't resist another try at the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge this week!!  Aaaahhhh simplicity...how I LOVE IT!!  Here's my card and the sketch...

 I used the Impression Obsession Cover a Card stamp, Birthday Words, using the top left corner of the 6" square stamp, masked on 4 sides, for my multi lined SENTIMENT part of the card.
I clear embossed the sentiments...loved the pretty shine the words got!!
 In an attempt to perhaps encourage someone out there, I'll let you in on a little secret...l stamp imperfectly!!  The reason that the panel is raised is that I stamped the sentiments on cards crooked so many times, hoping for a one layer card, that I finally stamped one that I could cut down to "look" just right...yes, sometimes you just have to go with imperfect...and for a perfectionist, that's a HUGE thing to admit!!!
 I used a Paper Smooches flower for a POP of color,  and an enamel dot for it's center.

I am really loving this sketch...the possibilities are endless!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  4. Wow! I love how you masked a portion of your stamp, and that little flower is adorable! I hear you about the stamping, I feel so much less stress by stamping on a panel, and adhering is to the card!
