CAS(E) This Sketch #41

I thought I would play with THIS challenge again seeing as they posted the new sketch for the week.

Do you laugh at yourself sometimes, the cards you make?  I do, a lot.  And tonight was one of those nights.  I have no clue why I designed this card this way, the only things I know for sure are:

1) I wanted to use this sketch in a different orientation
2) I wanted to use those sun rays
3) I wanted to use the HA Latte Chalk Ink and the Pale Tomato mid-tone ink

That's it!  No idea what those sun rays actually represent on this card, maybe the brain waves "thinking" seeing as this is a Thinking of You card.  WHO KNOWS?????  Here it is, yes, you can join in my laughter, it's ok, I can handle it.

Paper: cardstock (PTI)
Ink: HA Chalk Ink (Latte) & Mid Tone Shadow Ink (Pale Tomato)
Stamps: PTI (Hello Sunshine); Hero Arts (Sweet Threads Label)
Other: corner rounder; dimensional  foam

I'm going to try to be a more "serious" card maker for my next post.  But the important thing is that I am having fun.

Off to try and finish the book I am reading.  My hubby bought me a stunning Kindle which I am not allowing myself to use until I finish this "real" book!  Wish I could speed read (I use to, not anymore).

I just want to give a shout out to a new follower, Sandy, who is religiously posting such nice comments, thank you!  I go and check everytime if you have posted something so that I can return your kindness but no new posts, so this is my official thank you to you!

Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Well whatever they represent I like it!! Love those colors too. Might have to invest in the HA ink, I've been seeing a lot of it lately!

I really like that burst of gold above the "Thinking of you" Beautifully done. It's fun to let the mojo take over isn't it?

interesting card design Brenda.

You just make me laugh!! The design does sort of remind me of someone having a "lightbulb" moment. Too funny!! I always love how when you set our mind to using certain stamps and/or colors etc.. that you come up with something no matter what! LOL

What a great the fun explanation of those sun rays too! Such a cute idea for the card using the inspiration sketch!

I love that you go with it and share the outcome with us! And really, who says everything we create has to be meaningful and realistic?
