CAS(E) this Sketch #135 with Paper Trey Ink

Oh what a beautiful day it is outside!! The sun is shining, no humidity and a cool breeze. It is what I would refer to as a "perfect" day. Nice enough to have walked to the farmers market with a friend and get some yummy goodies from the garden.

It has been such a nice week too. Getting together with friends, sticking to my gym routine and getting time in my craft room. Win-win all around!!

Today I am playing with the CAS(E) this Sketch! blog. I used the "mess on my desk" to complete another card for my ongoing card set that I have been making. I only have one more card to finish, for a total of eight and it will be ready to go.

Here is my card:

I was so excited because I received my Paper Trey Ink order this week and my "Bowl of Sunshine" set of stamps and dies came. I had to use the oranges for this card.

Here is the sketch that inspired this card:

As you can see, I did change it up a bit.

My border is a bit larger then the sketch and the sentiment is on top of the border rather then on the bottom. I originally was going to only have two rows of triangles but it looked funny with the circle. I decided to go with four rows. I still have quite a bit of quilt triangles left and could probably make a couple more cards out of it.

To continue with my "quilted" theme, I used my Die-namics to die cut the stitches onto my yellow background and a Paper Trey Ink circle die to die cut the circle. I could have actually stitched around the circle but was too lazy to do so. I also thought it might look funny because I had to cut off part of it to fit my design.

This was so fun and easy to put together. I ADORE this sketch!!

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope the rest of your weekend is beautiful!!
