CAS[E] this Sketch #244

Chrissy is up to bat as our Sketch artist this week ... I cannot wait to see the card that inspired Sketch #244:


I don't know about you, but I have a stack of new Christmas stamp sets ... this one wanted out of its packaging pretty quickly!


What?  you didn't see a grove of Christmas trees in Chrissy's Sketch?  Turn it sideways and you may get a better idea how my brain works! 

Here's a little close-up of my Delicata silver stamping...


However you flip, or turn our Sketches know that we love them anyway you stamp it!!

Now let's go see Chrissy's card... ready. set. go!  thanks for the visit!

How exciting, new stamps, one of my favorite things too (I just need a little more time to play with them and my life would be perfecter lol.) Great stamping of those trees Michele, gives it a totally graphic feel!

Such a creative take on the sketch, Michele! Love the beautiful blue/green trees with the Delicata silver sentiments. They look like silver embossing. The linen background panel is perfect for the tree lines too. Hideko

Never mind that using those trees was clever. It's the sentiment stamping that amazed, Michele.
