CAS(E) this Sketch #114 [literally =]

Gayatri Murali has created a gorgeous sketch for this week's CAS(E)- enough said, you'll see what I mean:

 
I just couldn't wait to create a card! I can't imagine why I'm dreaming of Springtime in Paris... then again,why not?

Gayatri's sketch just says toile to me! You know those fabulous French prints that often depict a scene? I've seen them printed in blues, and greens, and often red... but black on white just does it for me.



Using the new Mama E. Freestyle Florals again - I don't think I'll ever tire of them - I simply stamped, masked and stamped again, a few of the many choices from the set.  Add a Mama E. Hello from Raspberry PTI card-stock, a frame from SSS, and VOILA: TOILE DE JOUY ... my way.

Hope you take time to frame a bit of something wonderful this week using our sketch - we love it when you do - and you do it so well! =]

You are forever clever Michele! I am so taken with your wave-embossed card! I love how you created your own negative spaces here and there. I know a few surfie dudes too would be loving this rad card. And then your raspberry kissed mono card! Elegance all the way! Tropical cyclone brewing North of where I live. Card inspiration?? I dare you!! 😉 xxx
