We're going retro this week at CAS(E) This Sketch all the way back to number 138 which debuted in August 2015. I didn't play along with the sketch back then so this was like brand new to me!
I'm still working on adding to my Christmas card stash so I used a poinsettia stamp set that I've had for quite a while but never actually used until last week. I embossed the flower and leaves in white and colored them in with pencils. A small sentiment popped up on foam tape completed the look. All in all I made this card faster than I thought I would and the colors aren't half bad! I came across this card from Pia Larsen recently, which inspired me to use this color combo. Her coloring of these images is amazing! And at Happy Little Stampers there is a Tis the Season challenge so I'll be adding this over there as well.
Before I added the popped up sentiment to this card I snapped a picture of it because it fit with the one layer and winter flora challenge at Less Is More. I really tried to incorporate a sentiment in keeping with the sketch and a one-layer theme but couldn't make it happen so the next best thing was to do two different versions of the same card.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you can join us at CAS(E) This Sketch! Our design team cards will inspire you for sure!
