CAS[E] this Sketch #311

I've taken Brian's Sketch this week and had a little 'out of the box' fun with it...


Armed with Beautiful Heart from Altenew, and a few Distress Inks, here is my card for CTS #311:



I'm hoping that gorgeous orange will blind you to the fact that my panel is a little not-on-purpose wonky!  ha!  Right now, I hope YOU have a little idea for what you'll put in Brian's box this week... have fun with it!

Thanks for stopping by!

=]  Michele

Distress Inks:   Orange Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Citron, and Cracked Pistachio DOX.
Sentiment:  Altenew:   Label Love
MFT: Wonky Stitched Squares

Oh my, that orange bloom is such a bright light on this grey, grim day. Another wonky winner in my eyes.

Not on purpose? Your subconscious needs a medal because your wonky panel is fantastic! The bloom is superbly colored and the wonky panel looks right at home.
