CAS[E] this Sketch! #142

Leigh Penner has created so many fabulous sketches for us ... this one just screamed FALL to me:

 
 
Would you be surprised at all if I told you I may have found another embossing folder?  Yep ... her first appearance - and I say 'her' because it is a Heidi Swapp, but could totally see this card given to a guy, or girl. 
 
For CTS #142 and Leigh!
 
Thrilled that I now have my very own Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves dies!!!
A bit of PPP sequins in Marigold and Tangerine, and Tangerine Chevron ribbon.
I think the sentiment is from Reverse Confetti - just one of those I borrowed while at Tracey's.
 
It has been nearly a year since Tom and I visited my wonderful friend Tracey McNeely in Toronto.  I brought along a stack of Neenah Solar White #110 cardstock and die-cut a forest-sized stash of these leaves to bring home ... I finally found these dies in stock, along with the newest Small Leaves set, as well!  Oh happy day!
 
You may wonder 'why white?'  To me, they look like a plaster of Paris sculpture in white ... and that embossing folder certainly mimics plaster as well - what do you think?
 
Will you be 'sculpting' a masterpiece for CAS[E] this Sketch #142?  We all love a stroll through our gallery each week!
 
Thanks for stopping by today!
