CAS(E) This Sketch #31–Hello, Friend!


Hola Crafty Friends!

Is it me, or does it seem like this week is DRAGGING?!  LOL  It could very possibly be that the minutes seem like hours as I wait to find out the results of Round 2 of the Gallery Idol competition.  Not gonna lie – pestering my friends, readers and colleagues for votes is KILLING me!  But I’m good with whatever the results are tomorrow – I know I gave it my best shot.  If I get to move on to Round 3, it’ll be an amazing blessing.  And if I don’t, it’s been a fun ride, and I’m good with it.  Okay, enough rambling . . . .

It’s time once again for this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge.  Chrissy designed this week’s sketch and I had a ball with it!



I was totally inspired by the feather in the sketch.  I had to pull out my Peacock Pretties set from Reverse Confetti.  I’m really loving the gold and sequins trends that are everywhere these days, so I had to add those in as well.  I did the spotlight technique on the feather.

We’d love to see your take on the sketch.  You can link your designs up at the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge Blog.  While you’re there, be sure and check out the awesomeness that my sweet teamies have created for you – you’re going to swoon!  Oh, and we have an amazing guest designer this week – Tracey McNeely.  She’s so freakin’ talented – she’s one of my craft crushes for sure!  So, head on over there to check it out!

That’s it for me today, my lovelies.  I need to spend the entire weekend in my craft room getting caught up on some stuff.  So that’s where I’ll be if you need me.  Ha!  Have a great weekend!  I’ll be back tomorrow with a Paper Smooches share!  Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful and perfectly embossed image...not a speck of EP shrapnel to be found! Of course, these colors are divine together! Love how you tucked the sentiment into the negative space!

Karolyn, this card is a stunner just like all your cards! I love the gold. It makes all the other colors seem that much richer. Awesome!
