Popping in for a second time today to share another thank you note. This time around I used this fabulous CAS layout from CAS(E) This Sketch #68:

and this awesome color combo from The Card Concept #5:

Here's my creation:

I thought this color combo and sketch were perfect for creating a masculine card. And the zig-zag drizzles on the treats in the inspiration photo reminded me of the Sketched Shapes stamp set from Papertrey Ink. What do you think???

I'll be mailing this to my brother, Steve, for the (ultra sneaky) role he played in my birthday surprises!

Oh...and I have to tell you that I am IN LOVE with this Celery Pigment Ink from Avery Elle!!! I have been on the hunt for the perfect green ink, and I think I've finally found it! Hooray!

'Til next time...
