CAS(E) This Sketch 98 - sweet yellow roses

Hello!

I've just returned from the BIG end of year All Strings Concert at school. They had string ensembles from Junior School through to Senior High School - nine ensembles in total. The theme was "A Night at the Movies" and the music played was all from movie scores and they had clips from the movies playing on the big screen at the back of the stage. It was AWESOME! Both my girls played violin - my little one (who's in Grade 1 at school) in the beginner Junior School ensemble and my big girl (Grade 6 at school) in the top Middle School ensemble. This concert is one of the highlights of our musical year. :-) It's always bittersweet because we say good-bye to our Grade 12 kids who are graduating, and we always think we'll never be able to live without them, and then the next year there are MORE awesome Grade 12 kids. ;-)

Anyway, the reason I am here is this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge! Another amazing sketch to work with, this one by Gayatri.
I used PTI The Sweet Life and Altenew Label Love stamps.
Thanks for coming by to visit me. I hope you can find some time to join in the fun this week! I'll be looking for you in the gallery!

Oh Michelle, this is so very beautiful! We're in the Fall of our year so these roses are just a treat for my eyes!
I played the cello when I was a child... the darned thing was way bigger than I and I had to carry it 3 blocks for lessons! Suffice it to say, I never got very good at it... but still love the strings the best! Good going, girls!
