Hello for CAS(E) this Sketch!

Hi everyone! 
 I had some time this morning to play along with the awesome sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch!

This sketch sings to my CAS heart!  I love how this leaf turned out.  I first stamped the Mini Scenery: Multifaceted stamp by Winnie & Walter onto water color cardstock.  Heat embossed using gold embossing powder then used Color Bursts to add color.  I then die cut using a leaf from My Favorite Things.  I love that the color burst powders give it a realistic look.  The colors are just beautiful here in the North West corner of Connecticut!  Recognize this leaf Michele?!!  :)

It is hard to see in the photo, but I scored lines down the front panel to represent the darker piece in the sketch.  Recognize that Hello stamp?  It is from the Hello World stamp set designed by Chaitali for Catherine Pooler Designs.  You still have time to purchase this stamp set to help a school in Boston purchase computers.  Read more here!

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!!!
