Color Throwdown & CAS(E) This Sketch

Another Wednesday means another Color Throwdown Challenge is happening! You will LOVE Vickie's great colors - red, pink and gray - which were perfect for a birthday card I needed to create for a special aunt and uncle! 

I finally got to ink up this new Marble Background stamp from MFT!  I can see this is one I'll be heading for time and time again.  I inked it up with WPlus9's Silver Lining dye ink.  I had some leftover pieces of alcohol ink papers so cut several of the floral die
layers from it and paired more layers from PTI's Pure Poppy CS.  I used Poppystamps' Small and Large Marianna Vine Background dies and cut from vellum and white CS.  In hindsight, I wish I had used some silver or gray leaves so they'd have better visibility.  The sentiment (Painted Greetings by Altenew) was white embossed on black CS.  I used Altenew's Fantasy Floral Die set easy and fun to create a dimensional design!  I'm also playing along with the current CAS(E) This Sketch challenge which happens to be a retro sketch.

We're happy to welcome a new guest designer for the month of February!  Say hello to Claire Apostoloff from Life on the Scrap Heap blog!
