CAS[E] this Sketch #185

Often times you've heard me say 'I scratched my head' over one sketch or another ... this time?  Well.  See for yourself:


I speak the truth, right?!  But, ever ready for a challenge, I persevered!!!  Take that, Leigh Penner!!!  [that said with a very big smile =] she knows I totally love her sketches!]

For Leigh and CTS #185:

Two sets of cute little MFT spectacles [I so want those polka dot ones] 
I cut a cute little heart-shaped button hole to hang them from.
SSS lines on the inside panel, and a few score lines a la Laurie Willison  
joined together with one of my personal sentiments ...
and this inside:
 
 
Clearly, we'll be looking forward to seeing how you interpret Leigh's fun sketch! 
 
Not only do we have a design-team's stack of cards to ogle, my friend Bobby Hagen is guest designing ... gotta run!!

I love this! Didn't know it was MFT's frames--they look so huge! (Optical illusion, eh?) And that "bonus" card with the hearts is my second fave part of the ensemble. Sigh....

I also love the wonky stripes and darling hearts you chose for your inside sentiment...Fabulous card...and I mean fabulous!!!

OMG, Michele, with one 'l'. Do you win every challenge you're in? Just, well, the sunglasses, looped together, the sentiment inside and out, the hearts, the colors. Stop me, I'm gushing again!

And I thought the cacti were cute. This is brilliantly clever, Michele, and you always do the best sentiments. I have those glasses. Hmmm I wonder what clever thing I could do with them.
