CAS(E) this Sketch {Believe} and Timeless Tuesday {Winter}

CAS(E) this Sketch

Edited to add: I was floored this morning when I saw that my card was chosen this week at CAS(E) this Sketch! Thank you so much ladies for the shout out! You have no idea how amazing this is for me! Wow!!!



Wow! The new CAS(E) this Sketch has really got my creative juices flowing! I saw the sketch and immediately my mind thought of the beautiful Santa Set from Flourishes. I had to ink it up! So I used some Early Espresso Ink on Vanilla Paper, Cherry Cobbler for the Sentiment and some My Mind's Eye DSP for the red matting. This card took me minutes to create...I love that and it is nice and flat, so easy to mail off. It is amazing how a sketch can really let you think outside of the box! I am wondering if I should have added some paper piercing or brads? But I love the simplicity...hmm...maybe some other colour choices? So many possibilities!  I also played along with the current Timeless Tuesday Challenge, All About Winter. Santa sums up winter for me!!!
