CAS[E] this Sketch #159

My sweet friend and team-mate, Michelle Williams has opened the flood-gates of my imagination with her sketch this week ... fair warning:  there are a few cards from me this week =]

Here is Michelle's sketch:

 
I'm seeing plaid - a favorite for sure.  But I wanted to play with another favorite:
hounds-tooth!
 

MFT Hounds tooth coverplate; W&W Big, Bold, friends cutaways, and stamps.
SSS Fog, and Kona cardstock; Delicata silver ink.

Now Plaid:

Don't adjust your glasses!  I've done a little ghost stamping on the stamped portion of the sentiment!
PTI Holiday plaid; SSS die cut; Hero Arts caring thoughts.

Finally, for CTS #159 and Michelle, because she can always make me...

MFT Background Roses; W&W Big, Bold, & Friends cutaways - adjusted.

I think I was in a grey mode today ... that's a good thing for me... a favorite color, indeed.
 
What 'pattern' will your CTS card be this week?  I look forward to seeing it!
 
=]  Michele

First to comment; a 'first' for me! Your trio of sketch interpretations are ah-mazing and awe-inspiring! I covet your houndstooth cover plate; adore your plaid; am enamoured with your roses (which I have! Yahoooo!). Love all of these, my designer extraordinaire friend!

Plaid, houndstooth, and Roses All Over--fantastic takes on the sketch! I almost went with some plaid paper slapped on a card, and the roses were on my mind. GMTA!

You were surely inspired with these gorgeous cards, Michele...and now, I am, too! Loving the PTI Houndstooth background so much...wish it were still available! Your plaid pattern is perfect with your sentiments, and the roses are stunning! Putting my thinking cap on after seeing these beauties...Thanks for the inspiration!

Dang, girl! You're rockin' this sketch. Love 'em all, but especially those roses. Soooo gorgeous. Love the wonderful neutral colors too. How in the world does that brain of yours work?!! Your fingers must have been flying! Awesomeness times three! Bev

Michelle said...

OMG!! You made ME smile! I had plaid on my mind when I created the sketch, but then when I was halfway through and had stripes, I liked this too! I should have done what you did and kept on creating! Your cards are beautiful, and I'm so happy to have you as my friend. :-)

Marybeth said...

LeAnne said...

FABulous cards...ALL of them! I am a bit partial to the houndstooth one....those sentiments and diecut with that sweet little heart embellie just send me over the top!

Bobby said...

I knew you loved houndstooth but didn't know you had a coverplate. You fooled me with the plaid because I thought you stamped it, and I love that you let me use your roses stamp. That also means I can't use any of those for my card. lol But it's okay because yours are all fabulous and I might have something else up my sleeve.

Jen Mitchell said...
