CAS[E] this Sketch #151

I am taking advantage of our awesome sketches to get busy with Christmas card-making ... yes, I do know they should be in the mail soon!  I'm a little behind last year's average - ugh!

I LOve this #151 sketch by Chrissy this week ... okay, and every other week, too:


I don't know why this SSS beauty sits in my stash ignored ... I LOve big dots!!  I've 'buttered' it up with the creamy, deliciously smooth Dreamweaver Pearlescent embossing paste - oh how I wish you could see this IRL! 

 
Winnie & Walter Happy Christmas set is the source for this darling wreath - I've pearl heat-embossed it, which just goes perfectly with the dots, and die cut it with two graduated sizes of pierced circle dies from MFT.  The Dec. 25th I've stamped in Pure Poppy, and clear embossed. 

We have had a bounty of gorgeousness in our CAS[E] this Sketch gallery ... thank you for playing cards with us each week!  Will I see you there again this week?  Hope so!

Oh, the shimmer from the Pearlescent embossing paste is just beautiful, Michele! (I must pull mine out) And, what a great idea to pair it with your pearl embossing powder on this gorgeous wreath! I love the pop of red and green on this card, too...such a lovely Christmas card!

Shimmery dots, an embossed wreath, pops of red and a whisper of green...some of my favourite things! Classy, through and through! You and dots = perfect match!
