Explosive News! CTS14

Good Morning and happy Saturday to you! I have a card to share with you that I made for the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge #14:

Here is the sketch:

I've been wanting to color this mad scientist as a REALLY BAD mad scientist for a while now. I was just waiting for the perfect sketch to present itself! I embossed, colored, and fussy cut him, along with the beaker and poof. I drew the star burst on scrap paper and cut out. Then using it as a template, outlined it onto the yellow card stock and cut out. I used some Prismacolor pencils to add some subtle color to the tips of the "explosion". I also took a red marker around the edge of it.  I sprayed some Glimmer Mist on the top of the card, stamped explosive news and adhered everything down. I. LOVE. THIS. CARD! It came out so much better than I hoped! Is there such a thing as 'Card Nirvana'? LOL!

Ok, I'm done patting myself on my back! (hee hee) I hope you get to play along too at Case this Sketch! Have a great day!
