CAS[E] this Sketch #234

The lovely Donna Mikasa is up as our Sketch designer this week... check it out!  It's a beauty:


I had a shaker in mind, and an idea - see if you think it was a good one!

I have this cute little Waffle Flower die ... the leftovers looked like hugs ... as in XXs!  so why not use them?  sweetest snippets EVER!



I've backed the cut-out with acetate so it is a see-through...

MFT Peek a boo square, and shaker inserts.

... then added a PPP Sweet-Pea mix of sequins to add just the right colors of green and pink to match the bits of colored cardstock to my linen card-base.

I hope I've given you a bit of inspiration today to play along with us ... if not, there are oodles of ideas at our CTS blog - Donna, and all of my team-mates are so incredibly talented!

Ha ha! I still haven't managed to get my hands on some Opal Fruits (it's what Starburst used to be called in the UK when I was a kid), but now I definitely want the sour ones :-)
This is such a pretty shaker card. Love the cut out background. Beautiful detail.
