colourQ #198 and CAS(E) this Sketch #36

IMG_1806


Happy Tuesday and time for another colourQ challenge!
This week is an interesting blend of rich colours.




For my congratulations card, I used a polaroid frame die, a leaf die and a banner die to support a single stamped image.  A few matching sequins to balance it out or maybe just to make me happy. ;)  I used this week's sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #36 for my card.
