Time Out challenge #35 - Nature with animals and CAS(E) this Sketch #132

Good Morning!

I had a pleasure to finally play along with card challenges again. Life has been so busy lately that I haven't really had time to play along. 

I saw the Time Out- challenge with nature theme. I've been so longing to make these little scenes with Purple Onion Designs' stamps for so long. Then I went to look for inspiration and I ended up to the CAS(E) this sketch and I started from their sketch. While making this the card kind of took a side track and the sketch isn't that "seeable" but that was my starting point at least. Here is my card:




I will submit this card to these challenges:

  8. This is such a cute little mouse Marika and you have coloured him beautifully. I love the way you have extended the background and restricted the colour to the image mat, a really great design. x
