CAS[E] this Sketch - Retro #3

Another Retro Sketch this week for CTS #275… this one goes way back to CTS#3


… but it is still fresh as a … fuschia?


I couldn't help pairing these beauties from Pretty Pink Posh with one of my many Altenew sets … hope is just what the doctor ordered, and my what prayers are asking for.   For a friend in need today, I know she'll appreciate the card, and the prayers.

Remember to share your original when you post the new version of your card to our gallery!  We love seeing them... again, and again!

What a clever and lovely design, Michele! I'm looking at the card for a while and guessing but still can't get how you cut the flowers partially and the circle from the same panel! Beautifully colored as always! Your friend will love it for sure!
