CAS(E) this Sketch #238 - i'm here for you

A friend of mine has been having a tough time, so I made this card to encourage her.

I got the design inspiration from Leigh's pretty sketch for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch!

I made a DIY stencil using the color drop dies and a piece of acetate sheet. Then I applied glimmer paste over the stencil. I really liked the shimmery and subtle effect. The cloud's shapes and colors are peeking through the drops.
The clouds were stenciled with Distress Oxide Ink. I also used Distress Oxide Inks for coloring the die-cut heart and stamping the sentiment to match the ink tones.

I die-cut the front panel with a Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX die to soften the look of the straight edges, and raised the panel with foam tape.

I'm entering my card in My Favorite Things' Card Design Superstar Contest too.
