CAS[E] this Sketch #149 with Second [and third] Helpings!

I really hope this is okay with you, but I could not stop playing with the sketch this week ... take a look:


At first glance, it appears Chrissy is looking for a 'one-layered' card, right?  Is it even possible to imagine me making a OLC?  Don't go there ...  go here to see the fabulous Dawn from Wplus9's design, and video to see my inspiration for:

Attempt one:


I almost made it, right?  Except that cute little pinecone did not want to accept color, so I stamped it again in brushed corduroy... there goes that one layer card.

Attempt two:


This one was going really well and then I discovered the panel was a bit small, and OH look it really looks wonderful with the new MFT Green Eyed Monster cardstock I just received ... another OLC down the tubes.

Attempt three doesn't even come close to a one layered card ... not even in the same neighborhood. 


But you know what?  I decided I loved them all ... there are no mistakes when it comes to creating.  [And I was able to incorporate my new wonky layer technique!  Me!  layers!]

Thanks, Chrissy for the beautiful sketch, and for helping me add to my stash of cards this week!

Thanks to all of you who've stopped by today ... hope you find a bit of time to play cards with us this week at CAS[E] this Sketch!!

Supplies:
    Wplus9 Holiday Boughs, Doodle Buds, Christmas Greetings

Not one, not two, but three absolutely GORGEOUS cards, Michele! I love your water coloring and I think all the layers are amazing! Loving your splatters, too! As always, you've done an amazing job on the sketch, my friend!

Three cards? I like that you didn't give up!! I would have just done one and stuck with the first no matter how much I wanted to do a one layer card. LOVE all the pretty colors you used and the watercolor background. Beautiful design!

These are gorgeous, and so happy to see there are other ppl in the world who struggle with the concept of keeping to one layer!

Impressive, each one! Why go with one layer when magic happens with more, as you've clearly shown here! Gorgeous x three!
