When Love Is Deep


I was really disappointed that I missed out on the first CAS(E) this Sketch challenge so I was determined to get a card made for it this week.  They have a killer design team over there and they're all ladies whose work I avidly follow.  :)  I've got all sorts of new things going on with this card.  The Cherry Blossoms and sentiment are from Sweet Stamp Shop and the pink "smudge" is from The Craft's Meow's Typically Teen set. The pink I used is Garnet Twinkling H2O.  I've had a box full of H2Os for well over a year now and this is the first time I've busted them out.  I really  like the bit of shine you get from them.

I also want to mention some awesome customer service.  A few weeks ago I decided to order some stamps from The Craft's Meow.  I filled up my cart, went to check out and realised there was no shipping option for Bermuda.  I do have a way of ordering things through the US but it adds on a lot of money so I emailed TCM and asked if they might at some point consider adding Bermuda as a shipping destination.  Less than 12 hours later (on a Sunday no less!) I had a response saying that Bermuda had been added and I could put my order in.  Now that is impressive.  On top of that the stamps arrived quickly and are really great quality.  I'm excited to really get playing with them!

Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill
Stamps:  (Branch & sentiment from Cherry Blossoms) Sweet Stamp Shop, (Smudge from Typically Teen) The Craft's Meow
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko

Now that is spectacular customer service! Sweet!
Love that 'smudge' - it's the perfect highlight for that gorgeous quote - and how pretty are those cherry blossoms!

That is one of my favourite stamps - it can be used in so many ways! Love the twinkly, watercolour look and the tie in to the cherry blossom branch!

You definitely should bust out your Twinkling H2Os more often... they're so much fun to use! Perfect here for your twinkly smudge. Beautiful card! And good to know about TCM.

Great card. I like how you did the sentiment. I've got some of those Twinkling H2o's, too, and haven't used them.
