CAS(E) this Sketch #81

Good morning and happy Thursday!  Have we got a fun challenge for you this week!  We are pairing up with Fusion this week for an amazing joint challenge that we know you guys are going to love.  When Lesley sent me the inspiration photo, I was just stupefied by how pretty it was and how well it went with our sketch this week.  It was as though we were in each others' heads or something.  We hope that our joint challenge will inspire you to play along with both challenges this week.  Just a note for all of you, to play in the Fusion challenge you do not necessarily have to use the sketch but to link it up to our CAS(E) this Sketch challenge, you will have to use the sketch.  We hope to see tons of cards using the sketch and the inspiration photo (good for both challenges) but you are welcome to only use the sketch (good for both challenges) or only use the picture (Fusion challenge only).  We'll leave that up to you.  We are just excited to have you join us both!  Make sure to note that this week's challenge will be ending on Wednesday instead of Thursday so we can coordinate with Fusion and pic our overall winner.  Without further ado, here is the inspiration for the week:

Our guest designer for the week is going to blow you away with her card.  Diane is an amazing card designer and her blog Peaceful Lane is an inspiration parade.  You will be blown away the amazing cards she creates.  I encourage you to go check out her blog and give her a big congrats for being our guest designer this week.  Are you ready to see her creation?

Here's what the rest of the team did with our joint challenge:

Maureen Merritt

Donna Mikasa

Michelle Williams

Betty J.
