CAS(E) this Sketch - On the Diagonal

This is my second post today!

There's a great sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch - it's got a fun diagonal element on it!

I thought that I remembered the sketch exactly and I happily pulled out a set that I hadn't used yet - Papertrey's Mini Blooms.  I got it all done (actually I did it three times before I managed not to smudge or mess up an image) - then when I was posting it on the CTS blog - I realized that the sentiment was on the diagonal.  I know there is no rule that says you have to follow a sketch exactly - but a diagonal sentiment would have been fun!!

Hello There

I hope to see you playing along!!

Sentiment on or not on a slant - this is one DAZZLING card! Love those stamped flowers! I think this is the 'inspiration' card to get me to dab my stamps into the inks I have and grit my teeth in accepting that 'colour kissing' is inevitable. I have TAWS flowers calling for stamping; may have to give this a go...
Thank you so much for commenting on my post, especially sharing the 'realities' of ink. If only I weren't so obsessive! As for my husband - yep, he's a keeper. Did I mention he makes home-made pizza (my only contribution is the dough) and pasta, with a little hand-cranked pasta maker, along with home-made tomato sauce? Plus, all his bike-riding leaves me with card-making time, so that's an extra bonus. Have a great day; I'll chime in with anwers to your survey this morning!

This is why I always avoided sketches - I thought you had to stick exactly to the design. But I found creative freedom with CAS(E) This Sketch!

Anyway, I love your re-arranged version with the straight sentiment and the little popped flower.

It's perfect! I wouldn't change one thing about it...well, maybe I'd put it in an envelope and send it to me. ;) I've been seeing it all over pinterest so I'm not the only one that feels that way!

Brandi said...
