Smile! - CAS(E) this Sketch!

Hey there!  I'm sharing a card I created using the newest sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch! CTS #42.
This week's sketch is by N@Ali, and it's SO versatile and fun.
My card ~

I used some white linen textured card stock, and began by misting spritzing it with some Mister Huey Gold color mist.  The patterned paper leaves were die cut, then glued to 2 layers of solid color card stock leaves.  I wanted to give them some dimension without using foam tape or dots.  If you click on the closeup photo you may be able to see the layers.
The gold stripes on the tiny "polaroid" frame are actually washi tape, adhered to white card stock. I attached a piece of vellum (stamped with my sentiment) behind the die cut.  A few enamel dots finished off my card.  What a fun card to put together!

Thanks so much for stopping in!
