CAS[E] this Sketch #307

Donna created a wonderful Sketch for #307!


I'm using a little gift that was tucked into a Christmas card sent all the way from Denmark!  Wasn't I the lucky one to have just the perfect grey cardstock, and background stamp* to create the perfect backdrop for this darling die-cut pocket**?


Is that not the coolest?  Anne-Mette sent several - and she truly knows how much I love grey!  LOVE that little tag for adding a few kisses and hugs... but that gold foil zipper?  It is so cool, right?  [I added a bit of stitching on my new machine!]

Do you know I like making cards that sing?  See if you can guess this very old tune... Anne-Mette knew it!  and it's sung in the movie: Love Actually!

Do you also know how happy I am when you drop in for a visit?  Yep... always makes me... so do my teamies at CTS.  Let's go!

*My MFT Cheesecloth background stamp is no longer available - sadly!

**This die set is currently only available in Denmark... but here's a link!

*SWOON*! All that texture you created on the grey between your stamps, stitching and those fabulous dies. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

FANTABULOUS. Love those grays and the hint of blue in them. Every small thing you added HAD to be there and makes this card IT. Blanking on the song though.

Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket! I'll be humming it all day now! :) Love your pocket card. I have a pocket stamp that I could do something similar with -- thanks for the inspiration.

This is super cute, Michele! A fantastic marriage of Anne-Mette's cool die-cut pocket gift and your awesome backdrop! Your stitching adds so much interest and echoes the zipper.

The first thing I noticed was the stitching! Oh my gosh, how cool is that?? Now I want a machine that does that. LOL Then I noticed your lovely gray! So pretty. Then I saw the pocket. Awesome. And then the zipper. Such a fabulous card, Michele! Sadly I think I am wrong in the song that came to my mind. Zippety Doo Dah. LOL I never saw Love Actually, so that didn't help me. So, zippety doo dah, zippety day. My oh my, have a wonderful day! Hugs!

Michele... this card is so darn cute! The dies are so unique... will you ask Anne Marie where they were purchased? Just love the little pocket!

Brenda said...

Wow Michele! I am so loving this card! First off that pocket with the golden zipper is so cute! Love that it came from so far away, that makes it even more special. I can't believe you had the perfect match of grey card stock to go with it! Love that you sewed on your card as well, I need to try that more often. The little side tag is so adorable with the die cut xoxo in it. Yep, I am loving everything about this card, including the sketch! Yep, you did it again....got that song in your head now? Hugs, Brenda

This is amazing! So much gorgeous texture and the little pops of color against that fabulous dark gray really make this card sing (pun intended ha ha!)

So much to love here! The star tucked into the pocket, your gold zipper, and most certainly your stitching. So glad to see you are fitting right in with your new machine!

Catch a little star and put it in your pocket.... I didn't look at the posts. I need the zipper. I am sure we were separated at birth. Love this card.
