CAS(E) This Sketch 181!

Thursday, July 14, 2016

Our new challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch, designed by Leigh Penner, is beautiful in its simplicity and I had a few ideas in my head for my card when I happened upon the inspiration challenge at Global Design Project.  The use of gold was eye-poppingly delicious so I decided right then and there to use some gold on my card.




I own a couple of gold ink pads and they are quite different from each other.  The one I chose to use on this card is a kind of a subtle sparkly gold and I actually wish I had used the other, which is much more vibrant.  But, on the other hand, the subtleness of this one makes the gold butterfly really stand out which was really my goal anyway!  The inspiration photo had some wee rhinestones scattered around the card so I added a few to mine too.  Perfect for The Mixed Media Card Challenge!


Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card.  Our design team at CAS(E) This Sketch has got some fabulous card to show you using this sketch so you don't want to miss them.  I hope we'll see you in the gallery!

Jen the neutrals and gold on this card are just delish. I had to read your supply list twice before I figured out the BG was a stamp, not a stencil, but love it regardless! Thanks for having me as a guest this week!
