CAS(E) this Sketch No. 98

Gayatri, you almost stumped me with this sketch.  Then, it hit me!  It may have taken way longer to put the idea to paper but, I hope you agree, it was worth the extra time knitting a glove!

Here is the sketch-to-beat-all-sketches:


I took the liberty of flipping it; for Gayatri and CTS#98:

The knitted glove is actually the white burlap DCWV paper I've been loving.
The glove, the ornament die, and
embossed sentiments are from SSS.
You'll see a few scraps of the
Recollections foil paper.

I'm such a dummy; I realized that when I read your most recent post about 'crossing the border'! Oh well...I'm still down the road, so should you ever head to Alberta's Rockies, let me know!
