CAS(E) this Sketch | Challenge #80

Hi there! Today I have a card for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge

Last week I took a trip to Whim So Doodle in St. Petersburg with a dear friend of mine and I picked up a 6x6 paper pack from Webster's Pages' Our Travels collection. The soft blue, red, yellow, pink, and gray colors are beautiful together, and I used one of the small flower patterned papers as a background on my card.

The center strip of patterned paper is Papertrey Ink's Tropical Teal patterns pack, and the "hello" die cut was cut from PTI's Wonderful Words: Hello die and Stampin' Up's Poppy Parade cardstock. The gold "you make me smile" sticker (which was blown out by my flash!) is from Chic Tags.

To give the "hello" die some dimension, I die cut it four times from Poppy Parade cardstock, then adhered them together before adhering the stacked die cut to my card. The three flowers/dies are from Wplus9's Fresh Cut Florals stamp set

Thank you to Tracey and Jen for the wire cutting suggestions... it looks like I need to purchase wire snips! Hopefully that will solve my problem. :)

Have a wonderful weekend!
