Here is my take on this week’s challenge from CAS(E) this Sketch.  Still sending out sympathy cards to friends and family who just lost their son in a card accident.  I loved Michelle Leone’s card so much that I just had to CASE it….used her colors and everything.  The black and yellow just looks so sharp together and I loved her rounded corner in the bottom right.  Thank you Michelle for the inspiration!!

Card details: Basic Black and Hello Honey card stock, ink, and designer papers from Stampin Up, Stamp set is a hostess set from Stampin Up, With Sympathy sentiment is also from Stampin Up,  finished off my card with some bling!
