CAS[E] this Sketch #277

 
N@ has such a cool way to stretch our design brains, doesn't she?
 
I had a fun little 'experiment' sitting on my craft table … turns out, it was a pretty cool beginning to my card for CTS #277!
 
 

I know that little balloon wasn't part of the Sketch... but come ON, we can't have a birthday without at least one!
 
I just know you'll have fun with this Sketch, and can't wait to see you all in our gallery!

I love your white heat-embossed gird stamp & watercoloring series, Michele!
The white die-cut sentiment against the lovely rainbow color background, the scalloped frame, and the balloon are all well coordinated! Hideko xx
