CAS(E) this Sketch Guest Designer

About a week ago, I won the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge with this card.  That means I get to be the guest designer for this week's sketch (and, more importantly, got to see the sketch in advance).  Yeee!!!


That half-circle shape just screamed doily to me, so I found a retired sentiment from Stampin' Up! that matched the length, embossed it in white, and sewed the trimmed doily underneath.  Very simple, yet I really like how it turned out.

I also chose the sentiment because it will go in my stash of cards for Operation Write Home.  If you've not heard of this organization, they collect hand-made cards and send to deployed soldiers.  The soldiers can then write letters home to their friends and family.  As you can imagine, "I miss you" cards are always needed.  With both my husband and son in the Army, it's a cause that is near and dear to my heart.  If you'd like to get involved, please be sure to read the guidelines so we keep our heroes safe.

Can't wait to see what you all come up with this week.

Until next time,
Becca
