CAS[E] the Sketch #126

I'm getting right to it this morning... I know, I know.  I say this all the time, but seriously - you ARE going to love our sketch this week!!! 



I received a few new goodies last week... among them the SSS Artful Flowers I've been wanting for too long!  Add a little of Distress water-coloring, a perfect Technique Tuesday word, and bingo: a pretty little wedding card!  For CTS#126:

Inside: It really is all you need!
 
I normally don't combine challenges but...hmmm... a wedding card... purple?  Perfect for Pia! 
 
 
How will this week's sketch inspire you, I wonder?  Check out what my team-mates have made ... you'll be inspired, and amazed!
 
Thanks for playing cards with us this week!
