CAS[E] this Sketch # 161

Another fun sketch from N@ Ali this week:


I'm going to go literal this week as I have a new set by Julie Ebersole from Ellen Hutson that fits the sketch perfectly ... and I want to play today =]  For CTS #161:


Palest lilac cardstock, a little slip of dotted vellum, and clouds that carry just a perfect Springtime breeze to lift that pink balloon!  Don't you just love the sentiment?  Words we all need to remember when life gets crazy, right?!

It isn't often that I add my CTS card to a challenge, but The Paper Players have an inspiration photo that is drawing my little balloon in their direction for PP283:


Hope you've had a chance to check out what my fabulous team-mates have made to inspire us ... I'm going back for second-looks - I'll see YOU in our gallery!

=]  Michele

Awww, I love this card Michele! That polka dot vellum is awesome, love those clouds and that balloon too, but it is that sentiment that won my heart. Yes, I do think we should like life by that sentiment! Love it! Hugs, Brenda
