CAS Colours and Sketches 192

I've spent the afternoon playing around with fancy things: copper and silver embossing, silver glimmer paper, baker's boxes and window sheets all in aid of some upcoming Christmas classes. 

Yet all the while this lovely sketch at CAS Colours and Sketches seemed to be calling me to play with it and eventually, I succumbed to its charm.

Sometimes it's hard to beat simplicity: a classic colour combination, some stamping and lots of open space.

Thanks for a great sketch to play with this week.

Card: Garden Green, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
Stamps: Holly Berry Happiness, Holly Jolly Greetings
Inks: Garden Green, Wild Wasabi, Cherry Cobbler
Other: Oval punch, Oval Scallop punch, dimensionals


  1. What a wonderful CAS card! I love the holly sprigs peeking out; great job with the sketch! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CC&S!

  2. It definitely is hard to beat simplicity. Beautifully done, Jan. Thanks for succumbing to the challenge sketch and playing along at CAS Colours & Sketches this week. Liz x

    1. Thanks Jo - I was surprised as I thought it a nice card but not one of my best cards.
