ATCAS2, CTS8 - Merry Christmas






I had so much fun yesterday with this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge:



that I decided to use the layout for my entry to this week's Addicted to CAS challenge - Bauble.

This stamp is from an old Stampin' Up set called Park Avenue Patterns. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and is stamped in Versafine Onyx and then emossed with iridescent embossing powder, to match the stickles on the strings.

December 19 - Edited to add:

This card was chosen as one of the top 3 at ATCAS!

Oh this is so colorful! Perfect use of the sketch in combination with the Bauble theme. :) I have to hurry up and finish my one layer Christmas cards and mail them out. So I may have to CAS(E) this idea! ;)

So, I'm going to be searching eBay for this stamp! This is gorgeous - perfect for the CASE sketch! Did you add the wee bits of white highlight to each bauble? If so, love it!
