CAS(E) This Sketch 298

Thursday, November 15, 2018

I am totally committed to the gnome craze this year and the new challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch, designed by Donna, fit right into my gnome-plan! 

These gnomes are just so dang cute!  Every time I go into Marshalls or TJ Maxx I can't help but roam around the Christmas decorations smiling at all the gnomes that I see.  And they're a great winter decoration with their warm hats and beard too!  So when I saw my friend Jen Timko using this fun stamp set I knew right away that I needed to have it.  I used a silver shimmer vellum to die cut a couple of snowflakes which I layered behind my little guy.  After I glued them to my card I thought they might look a tad like I gave him antlers but the glue was stuck fast so they had to stay! 

I made this card on Sunday and just before I sat down to write this blog post (on Wednesday) I decided to have a look at the newest Color Throwdown challenge.  Well what to my wondering eyes should appear --- but the colors (or a reasonable facsimile) that I used on my card!  What a happy coincidence!  That's one of my favorite challenges and I don't play along with them nearly as much as I used to so it's nice to join in this week.

How will our CAS(E) This Sketch challenge inspire you this week?  Join us in the gallery!  And thanks for stopping by!
