CASE Study #199 and CASE This Sketch #84

It's the beginning of a new week and a great week it will be. My calendar is clear so I should have time for crafting although I do have a wedding dress to alter.  I'm planning to make cards in the morning and evening and sew in the afternoons.  Let's see how that works. *_*

I have two cards for today's post so that I get them in to the challenges on time.  The first is for CASE Study.  I must admit I stared at Shari Carroll's card for some time before inspiration hit.

What do I see?  Circles.  Butterflies.  Newsprint.  Aha!!

Using the Extra Large Dot stencil from SSS and Mustard Seed Distress Ink, I created my background.   The Memory Box butterfly was inked with Mustard Seed and Ripe Persimmon and overlaid with black.  The sentiment is from Winnie & Walter's Big, Bold and Extra, white embossed on black and mounted on foam tape.  I even sneaked in a few Scattered Straw butterflies with a PTI stamp on three of the circles.

Now for my CASE This Sketch card.

This is a rather funky sketch and while I thought of using flowers for the circle, I decided on the Scribbles from PTI.

I will be needing a couple of anniversary cards in September so I used my NBUS stamp from PTI.  Some bright Hero Arts colors make it cheerful and fun.

I'm so glad you stopped by.  I hope you leave a comment to let me know you were here.
