CAS(e) this sketch #177

Hi there!

This is my last "live" blog post for the next 3 weeks... you will see my Design Team posts popping up in your reader... all scheduled, while I am taking a break and breathing in the crisp Winter's air of South-Africa!

So let's take a look at this week's CAS(e) this sketch !



I found a sketched design in the Silhouette online store which I thought will be a great fit for Leigh's sketch this week:



The flourish is so beautiful on its own, all I had to do was to decide how to crop and position it, add a sentiment, and finish it off with different shades of red/pink pearls.



Design ID #73046

Name of the font I used for the sentiment : Coventry Garden.

Check out the CTS blog for more wonderful inspiration from my teammates!

Hope to see you play along ;)

Hugs
Hannelie
