CAS(E) this Sketch #228 - happy birthday

Mom's birthday is coming up, so I made a card for her.

When I saw Chrissy's dynamic sketch of CAS(E) this Sketch #228, the curved lines reminded me of the beautiful flowing dresses printed on the Oscar de la Renta postal stamps.

I heat embossed the flower pattern (background stamp image) in silver pearl, and colored the flowers with Zig brush markers. 
I also heat embossed the sentiment on a piece of vellum, and layered the vellum over the top half.

Stamp: Something Lacy, Made for You (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Vellum (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Accessories: Dies (Stitched Basic Edges 2 - My Favorite Things), Embossing Powder (Silver Pearl - Wow, Melon Mambo - Stampin' Up!), Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers (Kuretake)

Thanks for checking in!
