High Flying - CAS(E) this Sketch






Making cards that will easily mail is like trying to pack everything you need on vacation in your carryon bag.  You want to look nice when you get there.......and you really need those wedge heels.......and just a few accessories.....and a sweater or two...and maybe some cool boots....... In the end you bring the little black dress, a bright scarf and a casual outfit for the plane.  

I have relatives in England and every year I try for a simple but classic card to make that trek across the ocean.  So here's my version of the "classic black dress with just a pop of color".  The tops of the houses from Holiday Home have a definite European feel and the simple twine will hardly make a bump in the envelope - perfect!

The 100th sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch was my inspiration. Congrats to all of the wonderful designers there who have provided inspiration 100 times!

This card is so fabulous, Linda! I love how you joined the houses together for a totally different look and curved the sentiment. Awesome mail-friendly card!
