CAS[E] this Sketch #156

Here is my story, and I'm sticking to it: 

Months ago, I was feeling that I wasn't pulling my weight at CAS[E] this Sketch, as I hadn't designed a sketch.  After discussing it with Chrissy, she suggested I send her a card I had made, and liked, and she would create a sketch based on it.  Awesome!  [yes, Chrissy is that good.]

Here is this week's sketch:


Here is my card:

 
This gorgeous paper was a gift from my sweet friend Hazel, and I've used nearly every single snippet of it ... all I did was add a little Copic color to one of the gorgeous roses, and few tiny seed pearls, a birthday wish, and voila!  
 
Thank you, Hazel ... thank you, Chrissy!  I'll get another to you very soon, promise!  xx
 
SO, how, and will, my card/sketch inspire you?  We all look forward to every card, every gallery, every week!
