My friend Brian King designed the sketch for Cas(e) this Sketch this week so I had to play along. After I finished my Halloween card - with this dapper little duck - I visited the Design Team blogs.
That Michele designed the sweetest card from snippets and kind of dared me to do the same! I love a good challenge so I dumped out my two snippet bowls - one has sentiments and the other images. I also have a small basket of rejected backgrounds.
A total mishmash of stuff for sure.....like a bicycle with no wheels, flowers with no stems, sea creatures with no ocean....I am sure Michele's snippets are much better!
But I wasn't going to give up! First I picked a sentiment strip and looked for anything that would work with the word sweet! Ahhh strawberries! I added a tropical green leaf and I was good! I found a blue cut out circle that I clipped to make a bowl......use your imagination here folks I was desperate! I trimmed a banner, found a plaid scrap and I was good to go! The soft stenciled layer was in my background basket - luckily my image covers the "bald spot"! So here's my snippet card using the CTS sketch!
I have to admit it was fun trying to make it all work!
