Dream Big, Believe - CAS - MUSE #163 and CASology #195

This is a quick CAS card inspired by this week's Muse #163, Jenni Murray.
Her card utilizes a lot of white space and a big, bold, typographically interesting sentiment
that takes center stage.  She used a metallic multi-layered chrysanthemum flower to the left
in mid-range pink colors.
Here is my take on the sketch. 
My card measures 5 1/4" square.
I did a double-white mat layer for extra texture and dimension,
then stitched some incomplete straight lines without thread using my Viking, which is always at my side and ready for anything. :)
As a lover of typography, the large sentiment appealed to me and I thought this
could make a good motivational card for many young people I know who are either graduating or just starting out on into the great unknown.
The crystal sprinkles on the blossom really REALLY remind me of sugar.  DE-LICIOUS.
The boys and I really love baking together and of course every muffin is better with some coarse sugar on top, right?  As a matter of fact, I think I might need to go set out some butter to soften.
There's got to be SOMEBODY who needs some home-baked goodness today or tomorrow...
Anyway, with all those Sprinkly thoughts
I'm also entering this one into the CASology Challenge #195.  You guessed it, SPRINKLES.
Materials Used on this Card:
Cardstock {Papertrey Ink}
Ribbon {Robert Stanley}
Crystal-crusted flower {Recollections}
Sentiment Stickers {Stick-abilities by TPS}
Well the boys' play break is over (they were playing cave creatures, as we've been studying land formations after our recent rock-cycle unit), so we have a bit more schooling to get through (a fraction food lesson...mwah hahaha!) and then I'll be back with a couple more cards that I had a GREAT time creating last night, as well as my spring cleanout giveaway.
Be well and enjoy the sunshine!
