You're Amazing!

Who would not to receive a card with this greeting!  I went to the CAS(e) this sketch for my inspiration.  
 Although I did not follow the sketch to the letter, I did let it be my launching point and that is what a sketch is about to me.  I used a die cut of some leaves by Memory Box for my main element.  The sentiment banner stamp is from My Favorite Things with the matching die.
 Take notice of my background.  I started coloring it by using a dot stencil and some Distress Stains.  I used water to give the look of watercolors.  After it was colored and dry, I took another stencil and embossed the paper using an embossing pad and my Cuttlebug.  The texture is oh so cool.  
Here is the CAS(e) this sketch.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
