CAS[E] this Sketch #167

I'm going a bit modern-graphic with the new sketch from N@ Ali this week - for CAS[E] this Sketch #167:


At first, I imagined those banners as elements lifted up, or placed upon the panel ... I've been itching to use a little die that hasn't seen the light of day in some time.  Here is how I've interpreted N@'s  sketch:


Die-cut stripes, and lifted sentiment, using some of my favorite colors, for an all-occasion card.  Bam!

How will you use the banners on the sketch?  Well we cannot ever get over how clever you all are!  See you in the gallery!

Thanks for stopping by!

Yowzah! This is definitely fabulous. LOVE red and gray together. Perfect take on N@'s sketch and love the uber CAS look you've got going on. Great card. Bev

Kelly Griglione said...

What a great reason for you to break out this die! Love the bold, graphic circles paired with the thin, scripty font. And then you have the bold red with the soft gray. Such a great card that looks simple at first, but is full of contrasts! Love it.
