RIC#27 and CTS#10 - Cacharel inspired birthday

Hello!

It is so HOT here! I'm about to expire! I think we have hit 36c (98.6F) here today and the humidity is not doing any favours either. Once I have this post up, I'm diving straight back into the pool.

I took a break from the pool to create this lovely card. The photo is a bit blurry, sorry!
I used PTI Botanical Silhouettes. Colours are SU! Brilliant Blue, Pool Party, and Early Espresso. Card is PTI Vintage Cream.

It's in response to two challenges. The first is Runway Inspired challenge #27, which brings us this lovely image as inspiration.
The second was CAS(E) this Sketch #10. I love this sketch for its simplicity.
Thanks for dropping by. Those of you with a bit of snow laying around, would you please send it my way? I'll swap you some sunshine and HOT air. ;-)

Hmmm... No snow here but it's damp and chilly (in the high 60s). I'll try and send some of that your way! Your card is a stunner! Thanks for playing along with CAS(E)This Sketch this week!
