CAS(E) this Sketch...You are Amazing

I've made a card for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch!  Here's my card and the sketch... 

I used the sweet new Simon Says Stamp stamp/die set You Matter, along with their stitched Square dies for today's card. 
I soooo wanted a pink, orange, black theme...but if you haven't found that out yet, things sometimes have a way of changing!!  Oh...how many colors I tried.   I even TRIED gray, but neither black nor gray were quite right.  With a black "YOU",  both the black and gray blended in to much...didn't allow the die cut sentiment to stand out...so the black square became yellow...
I loved Donna's card this week, so I felt as though I was in great company with these three colors!    I layered and glossy accented the "You" and added a cut up sentiment atop the stamped background.  Here's a close up...
Love this You Matter set!!...and the wonderful sketch this week, to use it with!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
