Let’s CAS(E) this SKETCH!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
It is a love themed day, get ready.

CTS is a challenge blog to inspire you to create a clean and simple card based on a fun sketch.
Here is my inspiration for this week’s challenge and brand new sketch.

I think I have fallen in love with my own card.
It is one of my all time faves actually.

And the idea came out of nowhere.  Meaning, I sat down and just grabbed paper, stamps and ink as I went along.  Usually, I’ll think about it a little before I start.  The sketch helps my mojo tremendously, but I couldn’t decided what to do beyond that.  The little bird stamp started it all and then everything just fell into place.

Make sure you hop over to the CTS blog for challenge rules and a blog full of inspiration.
The design team girls are so talented and have the most fabulous cards to share.
