Fabulous! A birthday card for CAS(E) this sketch!

As promised, I'm back with my 3rd post for today.  I think this beautiful, sunny and warm weather gave me some stamping energy!  Why don't I get that energy when it's time to do the house cleaning???

Enough about me.

I'm sharing a card that I made for the challenge at CAS(E) this sketch! - cts#6 by Lisa Arana
I made a list recently of some color ideas that I want to use...and this is one of them.  Sahara Sand and White.  I love the bright, clean look of this color combo.  And, I thought this sketch was just what I needed to bring it all together.
This is what I came up with.

I had also been wanting to use this SU chevron embossing folder that I got (earned, actually) recently.  Yeah, I'm liking this texture combined with these colors.  A lot.
I embossed the flowers with some Champagne embossing powder from Michaels.  I wanted a color that was close to the Sahara Sand card stock, but gold was too bright.  This worked much better.  Oh, I added a few drops of platinum Perfect Pearls to the centers of the flowers.  Such a soft look.

Well, I'd better finish this post and get back to the holiday movies that I mentioned in my previous post!
Thanks for spending a few minutes at my blog.  I truly appreciate my visitors and I love reading all comments!
