CAS(E) This Sketch #16


I know I'm cutting this seriously fine, but it's the first opportunity I've had to get this post done!!  Aaargh!

I did make this card for the CASology challenge as well at the awesome CAS(E) This Sketch sketch, however it's WAAAAY too late for the CASology deadline - whoops!  Ah well, at least I can still submit it for this one!

This is the fabulous sketch for CAS(E) this sketch;

I decided to go horizontal as this is something I never do.  The cue word over at CASology last week was 'FLAME', hence the colours I've used.  As soon as I saw the sentiment panel I thought 'bookmark' - don't know why, just did!  So that's what I made;

I made the black panel into a little pocket with flame coloured stitching down the side.  Then I just skid the bookmark into the pocket so that it can be removed to be used!  To make sure that the card wasn't too plain once the bookmark had been removed, I embossed another little sentiment underneath, like so;

And here are some more little pictures;

I loved this sketch and will absolutely be using it again!!!

Now to see if I can make the deadline for the new CASology challenge - CIRCLE!!!
