CAS(E) this Sketch! love & kisses

It's time for a new sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch!.  For some reason this simple sketch gave me headaches.  I think it's the placement of those two little buttons in the center.  I wanted to put them near the top or the bottom, but I challenged myself to make it work. (That's why they call these challenges!!!)


I just got the Paper Smooches set We Connect.  It's a set of love words and three fun ampersands (plus dies).  I got the entire set for the ampersands.  Sad, huh?  So I figured I had better use the words right away so they actually see ink!

love & kisses


And look...my embellies are in the middle - just where they are in the sketch!

I guarantee that the rest of the design team didn't have much trouble with the sketch as there are amazing cards in the gallery.  Check it out at CAS(E) this Sketch! then be sure to play along!

Sigh. This is perfect, Kim! I'd have never guessed you were challenged by those buttons! :) Love the pop of color those bright red lips provide and I love that DP that's peeking out from behind the sentiment!!!

I had to stop by here to check out what the words were that you used, soooooo cute!

Marjolein said...

Love the sentiment!
And you put quite a combination here on your card with your choice of designpaper, makes it less 'sweet', but it's a perfect combo with the button!!!!
Bye,

Marjolein
