CAS(E) this Sketch #353

Happy New Year to you! CAS(E) this Sketch is ready to bring you even more
sketches in 2020 and we do hope that you'll join us!

Teammie Brian starts us off with this one. Meet Sketch #353.

And here's my simplified take on it, because I wanted to use Hero Arts' 
Nautilus die.

The die appears to be a crosswise cut of a nautilus shell. I amped up the colors
after seeing this print on Pinterest. After assembling the die cut pieces, I adhered it 
to an embossed and spattered card base, then finished off with a gold embossed
sentiment and a sprinkling of gold sequins .

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how the rest of the team interpreted Brian's sketch
and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday, January 9th and as the
weekly winner, you'll be invited to join us on a future sketch!


  1. Wow, amazing nautilus shell, Donna! The die-cut itself is intricate and beautiful, but your ink-distressing and spattering make the shell exquisite! The fine lines of the dry embossing and the gold elements here and there are just perfect to highlight the beauty of the shell.
    Happy New Year to you too!
