CAS[E] This Sketch #123

I love our sketch this week and just let my card take a literal sway again this week.  Here is your CTS #123 challenge:

 
This is the way it was posted on the team blog ... I'm sure you can do anything you'd like, within reason =]
 
 
I enjoyed using another of my little Heidi Swapp hearts, this time silver embossing a bit of the edges, which I've seen done around the blogosphere lately, and offering it as a balloon with a bit of a silver thread for its string:
 
 
I'm not normally a big blue fan, but this icy little number was perfect with the streaming hearts of the patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket's Creative Girl collection.
 
Do dash over to see what my teamies have created... each is a charmer, believe me!  We can never wait to see how you all will charm us every week in our gallery!
