CAS[E] this Sketch #347 - Retro week!



There's nothing like looking back at cards of the past... we hope you feel that way, too, because it's RETRO WEEK, my friends!!  Chrissy's fun Sketch is from August 2015!!  Did you play??  Be sure to share the before, and after, in your post!!  Here's mine from 2015:



This past weekend, Tom and I visited our friends the Elton's, in Ohio … our guys spent a day photographing nature, and I was blessed with a full day of crafting with my sweet friend Lisa!!  SO how could I not make a 'what would Lisa do' card for this week?  I borrowed her SSS Autumn Blessings set, and she gave me a stack of GRAY card bases to play with, and shared an embossed tag - she does know me so well!  Thanks, Lisa!

Enough talk... here's my new card:


 


Thanks for stopping by … hope you have fun with this Retro Sketch!!  Let's go see what my CTS team has made for Sketch #347, shall we?

So glad I don't have to pick which one of these I like better. They're so very different and both are amazing. You do excellent work, girl.

Well, you know I love the new one *wink*, but the old one is amazing too. I like the lilac buildings! Sure loved our day of crafting XO

Gray base and dry embossed tag embellished with pretty floral wreath - superb CAS and so pretty!
I still remember the sketch. I entered two cards to #138 and one of them was the winner :) !!!

Your first effort is great and clever and neat, but your second effort is absolutely gorgeous! Love every detail. Thank you for sharing and I'm so happy you had a wonderful day with your friends. :)

I love your throwback card Michele, it is so cool looking. That paper is amazing of the city buildings and I adore the sentiment. Your tag card is so beautiful, I love the tag and the embossing of the tag, but it is the little wreath that is adorable and oh so pretty. Love the little cut out sentiment too. Hugs, Brenda

A nice combo of you (gray) and Lisa (tiny flowers), Michele.

I am so jealous that you got to craft with Lisa!! You are welcome to come down and stay with me to craft too!!! LOVE your stunning card. The flowers are GORGEOUS and I like how you used a tag!!!

Both cards are fabulous, Michele! I'm a city girl so I usually tend to be more attracted to buildings than to nature, but I can't resist the embossed tag with the pretty flower wreath. Love the modern-look with the dark gray card base!
