Cute Card Thursday ~ A Sketch by Caz

Caz has designed a fabulous sketch for us over on
I love all the layers it has!  I did forget to add the sentiment though! whoops!

I once again made a matching envelope and bookmark, I had to create a more boxy envelope this time so the roses wouldn't crush, it has a depth of 3/4 inch.
The bookmark has a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps digital sentiments designed by Ann Vento aka Raindrop Echo Designs.  They are the 'flowers in bloom' sentiment set.
I am entering Ann's Sentimental Sunday Challenge with this set, the theme this week is 'new beginnings' as this is a farewell gift for a teacher so also marks the start of a new school year! 
The stamp is from Susanas custom card and design, designed by Elisabeth Bell and is called 'latte' very appropriate for me!
The mug on the inside is a Studio G stamp and the pretty flower on the front of the envelope is one of the accessory stamps that comes with the fabulous new Carousel Horse stamp from Whimsy called 'Proud to Be
I don't usually opt to use purples but I love these papers and love the finished result.  They are Basic Grey 'Wisteria'.
The roses are Primas and are available in the Whimsy store at a great price!
The leaf punch is a Leone-Em.
The other challenges I am entering are
Spoonful of Sugar - cute and girly
Project Tuesday - card with matching bookmark
Papertake Weekly - say it with flowers
Pollycraft - summer blooms

Please drop by the rest of the DT and see their fab creations, we have another fantastic sponsor this week
Thanks for visiting, have a great Thursday!
