CAS[E] this Sketch #183

I knew exactly which set I'd use for Chrissy's gorgeous sketch for this week ...


This PTI set [Winter Woods] has been ignored far too long, considering I HAD to have it ... we've all been there, right?  It is quite gorgeous ...

For CTS #183:

MFT Distressed Patterns for the artful streaks!
 
I do hope you'll join us this week!  Maybe you have a seldom-used set YOU had to have?  Happy stamping!
