CAS(E) this Sketch #40

I went through my stamps and dies for the sketch this week at CAS(E) this Sketch and wound up  using the same die as a couple of the design team members...it just fit the sketch so perfectly:)!!  Here's my card and the sketch...(I edited my pic to a daylight photo)

I used the Leaf Column  and background(the back of my layering to give a ground to the inlayed pieces) dies from Simon Says Stamp along with a Hero Arts sentiment for my card.  I die cut the Outline Leaf die in black twice , the background die once, and the pieces are in shades of blue from Tim Holtz distress paper.  I die cut the long rectangle by using a Spellbinder Long Classic Rectangle from the Large set.  No rectangle dies I own fit the length perfectly, so I took the die, positioned it, taped it with my Eclipse tape and ran it half way under my Big Shot, not allowing it to go completely through.  THEN, I took the die  still on the paper, slid  it up to the opposite end of where I wanted the rectange to end...keeping the sides of the die tight against the sides I just cut, taped it again, and ran it all the way through the Big Shot.  Now I had a rectangle the right width AND the right length!!  Hope that makes sense:)!  Stamped the sentiment, embossed and popped up the panel on card.    Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

EDITED:  YAY...my card was chosen as a favorite this week at CAS(E) this Sketch....
thank you so much, ladies, for the recognition...I am honored:)!!
