CAS(E) this Sketch! | Challenge #90

Before I share my card for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge, I want to introduce everyone to the newest member of the Taylor family... Bailey! 

We adopted Bailey from a local shelter yesterday afternoon. She is a little timid, and definitely needs a trip to see a Vet (fleas, ear mites, and the incision from being spayed looks infected...), but I hope that once she's feeling better that she will be a great addition to our family. The boys adore her already, and the other animals (Rocket our Cockalier, and Lilly & Gabby our rescue kitties) aren't too upset by her. Lilly has hissed a few times, but Bailey doesn't seem to understand that is a "back off" noise... she just walks right past her! It's pretty funny to watch all four animals interact.

Here is the sketch I'm working with this week for the CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge:

I have a couple of dies that create a tilted square/rectangle, but I ended up cutting this one with my paper trimmer. After I trimmed it down, I used Papertrey Ink's Embellished Elegance stamp set, plus ink by Memento Luxe and Avery Elle, to stamp the white panel. I used Label Love from Altenew for the sentiment and the enamel dots are from My Mind's Eye. 

Avery Elle's Lemongrass ink matches Papertrey Ink's Limeade Ice perfectly, so I used Limeade Ice mini polka dot patterned paper for the background. 

We are off to a barbeque (hooray for three day weekends!). I hope everyone has a wonderful week! Thanks for stopping by.
