Easter CASing for a Challenge?!

So I found this super cute card HERE! It was made by Angie Britt, and I had to CASE it!! So simple and sweet. Then I got to thinking that it kinda fit the Sketch Challenge over at Craft Project Central. - So I decided to make it for that...

Now, that could be kinda rude if I was really submitting it to win a contest or something (taking someone else's card design). So just so you know, I'm not entering it for a contest! I'm giving all the credit to Angie! And thanks to her for the great inspiration. - I might even make a few more to send out for Easter! I just love this card! 

I hope you're inspired to make a card too - And here's the sketch that I used (I did turn the original design from portrait to landscape):

Hop on over to Craft Project Central, and check out the Challenge HERE! If you enter, you have a chance to win a free subscription to Craft Project Central!
