CAS(E) This Sketch 169

Thursday, April 21, 2016

I can hardly believe it's Thursday already!  My vacation is nearly over but on the bright side there's a new sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch!

I did a pretty liberal interpretation of the sketch this week.  The sentiment is doing double-duty as the horizontal line and since it didn't go all the way across the front of the card I stuck on a sequin to sort of carry the theme across.

My Christmas card stash is sorely lacking this year, surprise surprise, so I figured I better hop to it.  I really liked the challenge this week at Merry Monday to use purple, white, and silver but I can say, with no shame, that this card looked much better in my head than it does in the execution.  But I can at least knock one card off all the ones I'll need come December!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the cards from my CAS(E) This Sketch teamies this week.  I hope to see you in the gallery over there!

Stamps:  Jingle All the Way (Technique Tuesday)
Paper:  White (Spectrum Noir); Elegant Eggplant, Brushed Silver (SU)
Ink:  Versamark
Accessories:  Sketch Tree die (Memory Box); Midnight Blend sequins (Avery Elle); silver embossing powder

I think your interpretation on the sketch works really well. This is such a sweet Christmas card, and I'll bet they'd be fairly easy to mass all kinds of Christmassy colors! This is a fabulous card! Love it. Bev
