CAS-ual-Fridays Challenge #5

Hello Friday!! It's CAS-ual Fridays time! Are you in the mood for a sketch? Well, you are in for a treat! This sketch was designed by our talented DT (former 2sketch4U DT) Laura Davis.
 Our sponsor is the craft's meow
 Do check out the prize and details here
To be honest, this is my first time making a CAS card based on sketch! It is such a fun exercise since it really helps you think of the theme, design and placement of elements. You can have any sentiment to suit your card theme and design. This is what I came up with. I stamped almost half of the Starburst Lace for the base of this card.
hello sunshine
 I did some masking of the lace with stamped the hearts, then I added the borders (paper is from Cosmo Cricket). The sentiment "hello sunshine" is from SRM stickers. PERFECT!!
Please link up your card to CAS-ual Fridays by Wednesday, June 8, midnight Eastern Time. I can't wait to see what you create!

Please come back next week as I have Hero Arts Stamp (from the Spring/Summer 2011 catalog) giveaway!! You definitely don't want to miss that!
