I used to think I would never use dies...now I love using them, and wish large ones were more available. For this Cas(e) this Sketch challenge, I used a piece of designer black and white paper and three layers of the Happy diecut and a tiny decorative brad.

When this popped up in my e-mail, I was immediately in love with the colors! And I just happened to need to make a birthday card for my youngest sister today. I started with the colors, of course. Although I was in love with stripes, my black and white paper pads don't include stripes. Polka dots, yes! Choosing a sentiment was next; I don't have many beyond the "Happy Birthday" ones. The Emerson quote on a Wordsworth stamp seemed fitting. To make the card decidedly feminine, I added the butterfly for the Color Throwdown challenge.

Every day for 50 days, I made a card with some kind of sentiment appropriate for the "lockdown." Finally, I essentially ran out of ideas, so I'm trying card challenges again. My first non-Covid card is for Case This Sketch 371.
During this lockdown, I've been buying pads of patterned papers....several pads of paper. The front layer of this card is a sheet from Adalelne Craft Papers (PolkaDoodles) purchased from Simon Says.
The DaVinci die is a new one from Simon Says (Memory Box). "Joy" is an old SU! stamp.
