CAS(E) this Sketch #232 - hi, there

I made a summer greeting card today - greetings from a bear in a summer forest. This bear stamp is one of my favorites. He always makes me smile. :-)

My card design was inspired by Chrissy's sketch: CAS(E) this Sketch #232.

I used both the positive and the negative parts of the grass die-cuts - just put them apart an inch or so. The front grass panel is raised with foam squares.

Stamp: All Inside, Bear Ware (Ellen Hutson)
Bristol Smooth White (100 lb), Whisper White (Stampin' Up!)
VersaFine (Onyx Black - Tsukineko), Distress Ink (Ranger - Lucky Clover, Blueprint Sketch, Mowed Lawn)
Accessories: Grassy Edges (My Favorite Things), All Inside dies, Bear Ware dies (Ellen Hutson), Marker (Furty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, Pink Pirouette - Stampin' Up!), Glossy Accents (Ranger), Thin 3D Foam Squares (3L)

Thank you for your visit!
