CAS(E) this Sketch! Eeeek...

 *This is my second post today.  Please scroll down to see this week's CASE Study Challenge!

I've been holding on to some exciting news, today I finally get to share it...


It's such an honor to join such an amazing group of designers.

This is the first sketch I get to play along with...

Here's my take...


I've been on a bit of a masculine card kick lately, which is good because this doesn't happen often.  I need to stock up while I can :)   As soon as I saw this sketch, I knew I was going to use the Lil' Inker Anytime Tags, offsetting them a bit like the sketch.  I started by stamping and coloring the World Ornament by Hero Arts on Xpress It card stock.  Then I die cut the tag and stamped the corner with an image from Avery Elle's Love Notes.  The sentiment was stamped, hand-trimmed and added to the tag.  I added some simple line stamps to the card base to ground my design.

That's it, my first official post as a member of the CAS(E) this Sketch Design Team!

Head on over to CAS(E) this Sketch to see what the rest of the design team created.  
I hope you'll play along too!!

Stamps:  World Ornament (Hero Arts), Borders & Backgrounds (Wplus9)
Ink:  Tuxedo Black (Memento), Copic Markers
Paper:  Crumb Cake (SU), Enchanted Evening (PTI), Xpress It
Accessories:  Anytime Tags (Lil' Inker Designs), Linen Thread (SU)
