CAS[E] this Sketch #246

Leigh Penner is up this week - a very interesting Sketch... meant in the very best way!  Take a peek:


As I've told you many times, I DO NOT peek at the artist's card before I create ... in fact, many times their card isn't posted before the team gets their hands on it!

Here is where my juices flowed for CTS#246:

Inside:
... friends, like you,  FALL into my life just when I need them the most!
 
Do you see it?  sure hope so!  Thanks so much to all of you who take the time to tell me - you cannot imagine how much I appreciate every comment!
 
May I just take a moment to remind you about that pesky 'no comment blogger' thingy?  amy Tsuruta has been sending us all here to fix the issue... still works perfectly, and easily!  I always feel so badly when I cannot say thank you! for stopping by!  so thank you for stopping by!!!
 
=]  Michele
 
Supplies:  Essentials by Ellen:  Brushstroke Wonderful die, Thistle stamps, and dies.  Distress, and Distress Oxides for water coloring.  MFT Wonky Rectangle dies.

Well, I see the sketch in your design immediately...your watercoloring is perfect as a background for all the beautiful autumn elements and I love how you curved the sentiment! Really stunning card, Michele!

Oh Michele, this is fantastic, gorgeous, wonderful and all the happy and positive adjectives! I adore the colors, the watercoloring, the acorns and the sentiment! Every detail works together to create a glorious fall themed card! Thank you so much for sharing! Happy weekend to you!

Your background is made out of the prettiest Fall color combination I've ever seen! Love the blue on that! And the arrangement of those die cut elements are so pretty! A wonderful take on the sketch!!!

Simply fabulous, Ms. DCQ. I love those giant acorns. And the wonderful inky background. And the spatters. Oh heck I just love it all!

WOW! Not only an amazing translation of the sketch (all elements present and accounted for!), but the colours...the patterns...the images! Oh my! Stunning! In love...

I'll admit I'm guilty of peeking! But I only do it when I'm really stumped! I can see you can create a super fantastic card without seeing what the rest of us are doing - I tip my hat to you!! LOVE the colorful background here. Not to mention the colorful assortment of leaves, branches, acorns, and sentiment you've got going on! This is wonderful, to be sure!
