CAS(E) this Sketch 168

Meet CAS(E) this Sketch 168, brought to you by our teammie Sam.

Here's my simplified take on it.

Yep, I rotated the sketch 180°. Originally, I was going to have a hanging pup,
but thought he might be dangling too high, so I grounded him with the fence.
I think he's much happier that way.

I masked off a rectangle with Post It tape and ink distressed what appears
to be my favorite colors for sky + grass:  Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron and
Mowed Lawn. I spattered on some water, added the fence and popped up
the dog, then stamped the sentiment.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of my teammates interpreted
the sketch and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by
Thursday, April 21st and you could be guest designing with us!
