CAS(E) this Sketch: Take Over the World

My youngest son graduated from high school last night!!  This was the son that I wasn't sure would ever get there - but he did - and he did it with honors!!

I had a graduation card made for him quite some time ago, but a new set from Newton's Nook caught my eye - Newton's Graduation.  We have two beloved family cats and both of them fully embody this sentiment!

Newton Takes Over

I clearly didn't color the cat.  We have one cat who is a calico who definitely wants to take over the world but I do not have the skill set to color this as a calico.  The other cat is the sweeter cat and he's the one who would have made sure that Erik got a graduation card(!) but he's white with a patch of black on his tail and rear-end, the top of his head and right around the nose (he looks like Hitler!) so is not particularly attractive.  So I left this cat white and Erik can use his imagination!

By the time I noticed this set and ordered it, we already had graduation parties and house guests in full swing.  I needed a starting point to get this done so looked through my favorite challenges and came up with CAS(E) this Sketch!  I haven't played along with them in forever - although I look at and admire each and every sketch and design team card.  This sketch, upside down, was clearly graduation hats flying through the air!!  Thanks CtS!

Congratulations to your son! And what a great card to celebrate his graduation. The caps are a great confetti background and your sweet kitty is a special touch.
