Just a CAS(e) of........

Hi Lovelies,

I'm back again, with 3 cards to share today.  

As you can see I've followed this sketch from CAS(e) this sketch, exactly except for the last card.  I must admit that this is not normally something I would make.  So it was a stretch for me, having all that white space.  Hence the two birthday cards are very similar.  I decided to make one with a doodle border just to see what it looked like.  I think I prefer the one with out.  I also thought this would be a good opportunity to use some Washi Tape & that is what the butterfly is resting on.  I love the subtle pattern & colour of it.  

I'm sorry for the crappy photos today :(.  I need to break out the instruction booklet to see why the camera wouldn't focus on the cards up close.  So frustrating, in fact I had to swap out my background for something with a pattern on it so the camera would focus at a distance.  Even then the cards are blurry so a lot of photo editing had to be done.

Fabulous cards Paula. You did a great job to get Three cards done... I too like the one without the doodling better.

These are all amazing - I love seeing the difference that is made by simply doodling a frame around the card - the perfect finishing touch! Thanks so much for playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch this week, Paula!
