Lets Play Case and Sketch!

Hello crafting friends,

Today I saw my cousin Lynn's card at  The Case Study Challenge and just loved it. She is the June Guest Designer, so a huge congratulations to you Lynn!! Lynn's card is a 'case' of Lisa Spangler's card here and at the bottom of this post. I really liked the splashes of colours on Lisa's and Lynn's cards and this got me thinking about my new, getting lots of use, 'wonder watercolour' stamps from PTI. Then blog hopping this afternoon I saw the sketch at CAS(E) this sketch and immediately I knew how I wanted to 'case' these ideas using this sketch. I have to say I thought of this idea before I saw this card by Kim on the DT! But after seeing Kim's card I knew my idea would work and I just jigged the sketch around.

Next I went hunting for a colour scheme and didn't need to go far before I came across this week's gorgeous combo of teal, magenta and light grey at The Play Date Cafe.

A lot of inspiration went into this one card but I really do love it when this happens and this all happened in one day (usually when I am inspired like this it is over a few days!) I hope you can see I have added texture using the PTI linen impression plate.

I love how this turned out and it has been a while since I have played along at all these 3 challenges, so this makes me smile too!

And a roll call now for all those who inspired my card:
