Anyway, back to the card.... Today's sketch challenge on SCS turned out to be CAS for me, which was a surprise. Usually I do multiple layers with the sketches. The trick to this sketch was finding an image to fit the small panel; I knew I could resort to a sentiment, but then I remembered these chicks. They are colored with pencils and their eyes are dotted with a black gel pen. As I was looking through my stash for some paper, I came across this pretty pink pattern and thought it would be perfect; it reminded me of neopolitan ice-cream. The image is cut with a Spellbinder's die. I Cuttlebugged the background panel and added a bit of ribbon. It came together quickly, which is unusual for me.
