CAS(E) this Sketch with a Bumble Bee!!

This is my second post today!

It's time for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch!  I went even more literal than usual this week with pretty much an exact use of the sketch.  I've convinced myself that it is actually more of a challenge to use the sketch exactly as is.  It is NOT a lack of creativity!!

Just Because

My card came about because of that little bumble bee.  I just got this cute die by Elizabeth Craft Designs.  It also comes with wing piece that has the wings back more so you could add a number of them to a card and they would all look different.

Just Because close

My colors came from Dynamic Duos - just PERFECT for my bumble bee!


I hope to see you at CAS(E) this Sketch this week - even though I took the sketch literally - this sketch allows for a whole lot of variety.  Just check out the design team cards to see what I mean!

I think you totally made the most of this sketch with that embossing! It's stunning as a backdrop for the sentiment and the bee...AMAZING! I totally didn't even think Packer colors until I read Ardyth's comment...ha ha!

Fantastic card, Kim. I love the debossed dandellions in the background, and the bumblebee is perfect for that sentiment line. LOVE the polka-dot scallops! Thank you for joining us at Dynamic Duos. ;-)

Stunning Kim. Such a fun colour combo and the embossed flower is perfect. I tend not to stray too far from the sketch myself as they still feel very foreign to me lol, your creations are always fabulous.
