CAS(E) this Sketch #246

Saw a card on Instagram for this week's CAS(E) this sketch and had an idea using another set Dawn McVey designed way back in 2009. Happy, cheerful sentiments like the designer herself. Fall colors are still in full glory in our area although I expect that to change this weekend.

While the sentiment was designed by Dawn, I did pair it up with a few other products to complete the card. The owl is from Lil' Inker Designs, which might not quite fit the sketch but I wanted it to help complete the card. The embossed leaves from from a PTI set called Autumn Scarecrow. I used Distress Ink colors of Mustard, Pumpkin and Candied Apple with the "smoosh" technique for the watercolor background and the woodgrain embossing plate for the main body of the card.

Thanks for looking and wishing you all the best Dawn as you recover!

A very sweet owl card with Dawn's "smile" sentiment! Love your bright fall smooshed colors with the wood grain background.
