CAS[E] this Sketch #265

Donna Mikasa always gives us plenty of creative license with her Sketches ... #265 is no doubt going to become a favorite:


I had a few lovely florals on my desk, but these gorgeous Tulips from Wplus8 won the day...


I had first thought I'd use these MFT holes for stitching, but just thought they looked beautiful as is!

How will you interpret Donna's Sketch?  We are always so happy to find out!

Supplies:
MFT Blueprint #18 for holes; Pierced Circles Stax for The Circle!
Catherine Pooler inks: Shea Butter, Seafoam, and Spruce.

Definitely noticing a 'yellow' theme happening here at the moment, and loving it! I just looked over at my last two cards that I have made and guess what? yellow lol.
