CAS(E) This Sketch #137

Today, I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #137 designed by N@ Ali:




Here's my card:


I started with some Studio Calico patterned paper as my background.
I stamped the raccoon from Mama Elephant's Three Amigos stamp set in versafine onyx black ink 
onto some watercolour paper and coloured him in with some Zig Clear Colour Brush markers.
I stamped the little cake (from Reverse Confetti's Later Alligator stamp set)
and coloured it in as well.
Then, I used my kraft knife and a ruler to cut the angles and trimmed out the raccoon by hand.


I blended some ocean tides ink onto another piece of the watercolour paper
and diecut it with the Simon Says Stamp word die.
I stamped the "birthday wishes" from PTI's KIS: Belated Birthday
in versamark and heat embossed it on true black cardstock.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch 
and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Thursday, August 27th to link up your card.

Thanks for looking!

ACK! Absolutely darling in every way! The background paper is so eye-catching and perfect for the star of the show: the sweet cake-toting raccoon. Talk about smile-making!
