Today I'm sharing a card I made for the most recent CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge.

Here's the sketch:

 And here's my take:

At a crafty retreat in March I had lots of fun playing with some of the Nuvo Glimmer Pastes. So fantastic!!! And I love how they sparkle! On this panel I've used Blue Topaz and Sapphire Blue with the On The Diagonal Stencil from MFT.

The "Awesome" die is a new to me purchase from Neat and Tangled. I absolutely LOVE it and can see already that I'm going to use it a lot!!!

One of my neighbor girlfriends just went through Fire Academy to become a volunteer firefighter with our mountain fire department. Last weekend she had her final tests, and she passed, so I made this card for her :) I'm so excited for her!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love the ombre look of the glitter paste and how you reversed the strips. The awesome die is "awesome". Good for your friend for being a volunteer. That sounds like a hard job.
