CAS[E] this Sketch #366

Brian has a lovely layered Sketch for this week …
thank you, Brian! 
Meet CTS#366:


Those fabulous Stampin' Up people really know how to layer beautifully … me?  Not so much... but I gave it a go, using a few Pinkfresh Studio products today.  I'll be shining a light on a few of my favorite companies in the next few weeks - they are all deserving, and need us during these hard times.

 
The largest layer is PFS Braided Tag, which I partial-cut, reverse, and cut again so both ends would have the rounded edge.  The holes were die cut the same way... it might be
easier for you to imagine this if you could see the set here.

 
The second, and third layers were cut with
the oval labels from PFS Essential Labels set.
The midsize one was also cut with PFS Noteworthy Frames - so I could tuck in a few of their Dainty Blossoms … all patterned paper is from PFS Indigo Hills. 
A very appropriate sentiment 'dots the i' for this card for a friend... it comes from PFS Oval Floral Wreath.
 
That's it!  Hope you'll join us this week …
maybe highlight one of your own favorite companies? 
We'll love having you, and your view of Brian's Sketch!

Super creative layering and that oval shape is just divine!
The "dot on the i" for me is that lovely bloom--perfection!

Oooh, I love this layered beauty Michele! The flowers tucked into that little pocket is genius. What a beautiful focal point on your sweet card.

You did a great job of partially die-cutting the oval, Michele! I thought you used one of those hemstitched dies. ;-P
I love how you tucked the dainty flowers in the middle oval instead of just layering three ovals. So pretty!

I just love all the little bits of detail in this. If you could keep looking at it you see new little detail like the little pieces left in the die cut flowers. A truly lovely card xx
