Retro Sketches

Today's sketch comes from a gorgeous CAS Kasia card.  All of her cards are gorgeous aren't they?  :)  Here is my take...

If you saw yesterday's post, you know I have been playing with the Cameo.  I thought I would do something similar for today's sketch.  This time I just made the card front with 2 rectangles and then enough space in the middle for the sentiment.

I used the most adorable set of stamps from Kelley Purkey's new line called Joy and the little piece of grid paper is from another set called Autumn.  I got them both at Simon Says Stamps.  LOVE!  (And it looks like my sentiment is crooked...hate it when that happens!) :)

I found a little tree brad from my scrapbooking stash (from prob 10 years ago)...I knew I held on to some of that stuff for a reason!  LOL!

Here is today's sketch...

Another beautiful card and you are so talented when it comes to using the cameo. I love the crisp look of the white with the stamping.
Still hoping you will share the cut file from yesterdays card.

Great idea for a holiday card... if your sentiment is crooked it must be by centimeters.

The shadowbox effect you created is perfect paired with the sketch. Thank you for the timing of this post, too. I've been trying to finalize a sketch for an alpha card I'm making and I think that this will work better than what I've doodled.

Another amazing card! The cut, the colors, the little metal embellishment, everything has a purpose.
