Happy Birthday... Paper Smooches Anything Goes, CAS(E) this Sketch #89


I'm back...

After our trip to Banff, I was rummaging through some of my 'to use' papers (I had a mission in mind - and  it's still not fulfilled, because I became distracted...) where I came across a water-coloured piece, cast aside, presuming that, at some point, the unused back could be used for another project. For whatever reason, it caught my eye and I wound up creating a card for  CAS(E) this Sketch #89, inspired by the jazzy numbers card shared by DT Donna Mikasa


I haven't used my Paper Smooches numbers for far too long, so out they came...


In real life, the blues are much more vibrant, but since I'm close to the gallery at Paper Smooches Anything Goes


closing , a 'cloudy day' photo it is. 

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day.

  2. Love this idea! The banner is a great way to add a sentiment and the stitching detail on the die really finishes this off. Great card!

  3. I'm thinking your relationship with watercolouring and DI's deserves a reconciliation, Carol ... what a gorgeous background! Perfect with the yummy white and scattering of sequins ... cool, crisp, fresh and so fun! Hugs, Anita :)
