CAS[E] this Sketch #267

Donna Mikasa is our Sketch artist this week ... my friend, you really tested me - in a fun way!


I had a cute little die cut in my snippets box that just seemed to fit Donna's Sketch... see if you agree:


You'll see a bit of embossing inside the square, "Congrats" stands in for the stripe of the Sketch, and I'm so happy to finally get these little MFT bandstand bunnies inky!  It was fun to make the cymbal player march across the card!

Can't wait to see how you are inspired by Donna's Sketch #267 ... now let's go see Donna's, and my team-mate's cards!

Fantastic take on the sketch, Michele! I love the music sheet dry embossing in the background. It's perfect for the little musicians/bunnies. How fun to add the slider mechanism to the cymbal bunny!! Hideko xx

This is as cute as can be! And the embossed music notes are just that little something that makes a blank white space into a finishing touch that completes the card. You make such great cards💕
