CAS(E) This Sketch 217

It's funny how inspiration strikes sometimes, right?  Take this weeks challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch.  I spent a lot of time mulling over this sketch and thinking of a superhero in front of a pointy bubble or a city skyline.  I was all set to make that card when I happened to spot a project that I made ages ago using a leafy die with lots of pointy leaves.  And poof!  A brand new idea was born!

Cool sketch huh?  My pointy palm fronds are meant to mimic the pointy elements of the sketch.  And I found a wee sentiment that fit perfectly on the bottom corner.  The background is the last piece I had of some ombre patterned paper.  I guess that means I have to practice making some of that on my own now!

My CAS(E) This Sketch teamies have got some great interpretations of this sketch so be sure to check them out!  I hope you've got time to join us in the gallery!
