CAS(E) This Sketch 323

We've got a retro sketch for you at CAS(E) This Sketch.  The original debuted HERE all the way back to 2015!  I love looking at the cards for these retro sketches -- it's fun to see the designs and the trends that were popular at the time!  And here's my card for the sketch redux:

A few weeks ago our fearless leader Chrissy made THIS card which heavily influenced my card today.  I loved the jagged edges of her layers and when I sat down at my desk to make my card for this challenge I couldn't help thinking that jagged layers would be perfect to mimic the lines of the chevrons in the sketch.  So I grabbed a mountain landscape die cut three mountains - the one in the middle is actually a pretty glimmer paper.  Then I added a few snowflakes and a simple sentiment and I had another Christmas card to add to my stash.

Despite the beachy theme of the colors and inspiration at The Color Throwdown I chose to make a Christmas card with them.  This is actually one of my favorite color combos for Christmas cards.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you can check out the designs over at CAS(E) This Sketch.  They're pretty amazing!

Clever use of the jagged edge and how great that you are already completing Christmas cards! I can never seem to get into that mode this early in the year. :-) Thanks for joining us at CTD!
