CAS-ual Fridays and CAS(E) This Sketch

I love the current sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch and thought it would go well with the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays which invites us to place an element over the side of our card.

I finally created my first Christmas card of the season!

My white gel pen was not cooperating but this was a fun and easy card to make.  ;)

It's difficult to tell, but I impressed the poinsettia with PTI's Canvas impression plate and used a glue pen and Prisma glitter in the center.

Thanks for peeking!

Love it Dana! It's beautiful! Wish we could craft together. Nice to see you get sarted on Christmas cards :). I tried squiggly lines too on a LO and ended up loving effect as well.
