CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone ~
I have a card to share for this week’s challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch, which was illustrated by Chrissy Larson. Here is my card: 





I wanted to keep my design CAS, so I started with soft stone cardstock for my card base, and SSS cloud speech bubbles in soft pink and inlaid into the front panel. I die cut the 'Be’ four times in dove gray, and stacked them to add a little dimension, then stamped the sentiments to complement the die. Lastly, I added a few sequins and a touch of WOS to the die cut. Here is a close up of the sparkle:



My sincere thanks to my Blog Friend, Sarah...I must have loved her card so much that I unknowingly CASE'd her lovely idea to use speech bubbles for this card...my apologies for not seeing it sooner!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
