CAS(E) this Sketch #303

Hello and Happy New Year!
It's a new year and we've got a slew of sketches for you and we're looking
forward to having you join us and seeing you in the gallery.

Here's the first sketch for 2019 and it's a retro one.

This was my take back in December 2017.

And here's my 2019 take on the sketch.

An Altenew bloom, inked in coral--Pantone's 2019 Color of the Year!--was adhered
to diagonal striped paper and paired with an Altenew "hello".

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the team interpreted the sketch
and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday, January 10th and as the 
weekly winner, you'll be invited to guest with us on a future sketch!



  1. Lovely! The subtle inking on the bloom gives it such great dimension. And I love the simple diagonal stripe!

  2. Oh, I love that you chose tone-on-tone coral for your bloom, Donna...Gorgeous take on the sketch! Love your cute little Santa, too :)

  3. Wow, this is stunning, Donna! I LOVE it! The color palette is sophisticated (and you included the Pantone's 2019 Color of the Year), and I see your great taste in your choice of the strips for the rectangular panel.

  4. Happy New Year, Donna! I know, I know... I'm pretty late to the party, right? lol
    I'm always so happy to see this gorgeous bloom, not matter what the occasion... your coral inking is just fabulous - HELLOOOO gorgeous!

  5. Donna, this sketch was so much fun for me and so easy to pull together that I'm sure I will be using it over and over again throughout the year. I adore both of your fun cards!
