CAS(E) this Sketch 70

Hi everyone.


Early Saturday morning post for my card for the current sketch challenge over at the CAS(E) this Sketch Blog.

I have done the die cut inlay technique for the first time using the 'Leaf Filled Flourish' die from the Die-namics range by MFT.

This is my card:

 
 
I have coloured my flourish with four different distress inks and coated it with Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer to give it some shine.
The sentiment is in Afrikaans and says 'Congratulations'.
I finished it off with 3 black rhinestones.
 
This is the sketch:



Thanks for popping in and have a super weekend!!

Kind regards
Petra

Such an imaginative way to use this great flourish die. Love the jeweled colors you achieved and the 3D Crystal Lacquer made it even more 'jewel like'. Such a simple design, but oh- so very effective. Wonderful colors + wonderful design = Marvelous card. TFS & Hugs
