CAS[E] this Sketch #119 - N@ Ali

N@ Ali is fabulous at creating sketches.  Here's is the loveliness we had to work with for CTS #119:


There was not one doubt in my mind what I would reach for!
See if you agree that this little die from MFT called Out on a Limb works well:


Tracey McNeely gifted me with the wonderful polka dotty patterned paper!!  I cannot believe the generous heart you have, Tracey. .. thanks again. 

Secondly, an apology to you all... I haven't a clue who makes that gorgeous background paper... wish it wasn't so... 'cuz I want MORE!  If anyone recognizes it, please share?

The sentiment is from the Precious Remembrances Shop's Thanks stamp setIt stamps just beautifully... even that detail was perfect when embossed with detail silver from Ranger.  Here's a little close-up:


Hope you grab a cuppa and browse the DT gallery ... these folks I get to play cards with?  Awesome!  Oh that does include YOU, too!  Come on along!

Beautiful card! I love the color combination! I had to come over and say Hi from Crimson Owl Creations! I grew up in Wisconsin and my maiden name began with an F - -an unusual Prussian name too. I spent my entire life spelling my first AND last name to everyone.

One time I left on a vacation and a co-worker agreed to schedule my presentations for me. She told me she spent a week spelling my name in the exact same way I did that she overheard me do a thousand times! I was the only "Michele" (any spelling) in the entire school through 8 years of Catholic school, and was called Michael for weeks at the start of every school year! Today, Michele is a more poplar name, and I've seen a dozen spellings! I think one L is the best!
take care!

Perfectly perfect take on the sketch! I was gonna grab a tree, too, but went rogue this time! Sure wish there was a "patterned paper finder" App because that's a lovely piece! Studio Calico?

What a beautiful card Michele! I love that grey paper and I wish I knew who made it too, but I don't :-( But I am so loving it! I also love that tree die, and the green polka dot leaves are just so dang cute! Your sentiment is perfect as well, love it. Hugs, Brenda

Your card is absolutely PERFECT, Michele! I love it.

Fabulous background paper and what could be better than polka dot leaves--just gorgeous! And what a wonderful sentiment!

Tracey McNeely said...

Beautiful card and design Michele, you are most welcome to have more--come get!!

Joyce said...

Oh, this is such a pretty card. Love how your background is so interesting, but it does not over power your focal point in any way. So, you like that paper from Tracey? I've got it in every color, and some of it is yours if you stop by to pick it up yourself.

Neets B said...

Just gorgeous, love the mix of patterned papers yet it remains gloriously CAS. LOVE! x

Cat Craig said...
