CAS[E] this Sketch #146

Chrissy provided a simple, yet challenging, sketch #146 for us this week:

Oh the directions we could go, right?  It took me two ways!  First up, this little number:

Three different stamp sets ..  yes, three!!
SSS I see you: the tiny hearts
Concord & 9th Being Classy for the words,
and the perfect leafy branches from
Stamplorations: Dee's Frames & Flowers  [thank you, Deepti!!]
 
 
While those SSS stamps were on my desk, this little idea popped into my head ... so hard to stop that popping!
 
 
You'll have to dash over to CAS[E] this Sketch to see which one of my cards I chose for the team gallery!  I'll be putting on my readers to see who will grace us with their own cards this week - oh you creative people are making it tough to choose ... we love them all!

I wish I had a brain that popped as fast as yours! Love the cards, and the fact that you can create them apparently so effortlessly!!

Super fab Michele, loving the 'classy' colour combos too!

Oh, these are both fabulous, Michele! Is that first one for me? ;)

Lisa said...

They're both fabulous, but the first is my fave!! I love the soft curve the leafy sprigs give it, very pretty!!

Two fabulous cards, Michele! I love how you stamped your sentiment on the first one...Dee's leafy branches are the perfect touch, too! Your 2nd card is so fun! I love the eyeglasses in the corner and the arrows are really cool!

I like that you created two fun cards from this sketch. I like the first one with the pretty flowers, I think the best. I also love the colors that you used. Great take on the sketch!!

It looks Like I need to make another trip to your house to see these products. Love the glasses and chevrons.

These are so unique and so very beautiful in their own way, I like the rad look of second and a more feminine look of the first. Those colors are just amazing :) thank you so much for making my day with ur inspiring creations :)

A couple of beauties, Michele ... the glasses one is so fun ... and oh my, the grey and red with your three-set sentiment and leaf flourishes ... awesome! Hugs, Anita :)

We're just back from visiting my MIL and I've come to the best spot ever for some mega-cheering up! Besides, there is NO WAY I'm not going to second-help-myself to your gallery! Seat belt fastened (again *grin*) and I'm going for a happy drive. Both cards here are sketch-alicious and sentiment perfect! Love those carefully selected pops of red!
