MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #289

I have a love affair with hounds-tooth ... I've never denied it  ... in orange?  Well.  Be still my heart ...

For MFTWSC289:

MFT Thanks die, DC Large Scale Backgrounds; BB You're Super,
and a few of my favorite jumbo enamel dots!!
 
 

In hindsight, I do wish I'd given my die-cut Thanks a bit more of a lift ... but I'm sure this will provide a wee bit of a lift to one of my friends all the same.

I love houndstooth too. Thanks to you, I had to buy that MFT die. I LOVE the orange, though. Wonderful take on the sketch!
