CASE this Sketch #60

I needed to make a card for a friend and was stumped for ideas for the stamp I wanted to use.  So I turned to CASE this Sketch #60 for ideas.  Here's the sketch:
Due to the orientation of my stamp I opted to turn the sketch sideways.  I was originally going to use staples along the one side but decided that stitching fit the stamp better.  I like the final product okay but I think I would have liked it better had I moved the main image further to the left, more like the sketch.  Hey, those sketch people must know what they are talking about!
The Fine Print: Stamp by PSX, colored with Copics, designer paper by Chatterbox, stitching done with embroidery floss.

I am not a card maker, but I love what you made. I had a quick look around your blog and I love the bits and pieces you use to make your cards exciting. I think they are quite lovely.

Thanks for stopping by today. You don't have to drink coffee, tea, or anything other than water, if you prefer. You just have to show up with a mug, glass, sippy cup, to-go cup, or whatever makes you happy. So, if you are so inclined, please join us anytime. Sort of like Julia's desk, we'll welcome you no matter what you drink!

Adorable. I'm a sucker for a pitcher o flowers, and when you add in cross stitch on pink & green plaid, well, I'm yer man..or should that be woman...or person? I'm too old to be p.correct. I think I've outlived the language. This is just a cheery spring card Judy. TFS & Hugs
