CTS #172

Good morning!!  I think the sun might actually shine here today.  Too bad I'll be in the car for most of the day.  Ha ha!  We are going to head down to my nephew's All State Band concert this afternoon.  I'm very excited to go watch him perform.  He's a senior (can't believe that) and this will be the last time we'll get to watch him before he heads off to college.  He's quite the musician and it's always great to watch a kid in their element. 

Speaking of being in your element, this week's sketch is right up my alley!  :)  Make sure you go check it out on CAS(E) this Sketch.  I know you will love what the design team came up with this week.  I sure do!  Here's my take on the sketch:

I started with a watercolor panel that I cut with Stitched Mats: Side-Stitched Rectangles.  Next, I swiped some pinky watercolor on my panel and stamped some envelopes from Simon Says Sending Happy Thoughts randomly in my watercolor splotch.  Next, I cut some Of the Heart Dies from vellum and added them to my background.  I cut my Sending twice from black cardstock and layered my vellum banner stamped with a sentiment from The Big, The Bold, And Party from Winnie & Walter in between the two cuts.  This allowed me to attach my banner to the card without being able to see the adhesive I used through the vellum.  I added my finished card front to a card base of black and white stripes.  I finished the card off with some heart stickers and hexagon confetti from Target.

I hope you enjoyed my take on the sketch and will join us today at CAS(E) this Sketch!  Oh, and if you are interested in any of the Lil' Inker Designs products I used today, Laura is planning a great sale starting tomorrow!  You can read all about it on the Lil' Inker Designs blog.  Have a great day!
