CAS(E) This Sketch #37


Welcome to Week 37 of CAS(E) This Sketch!  Take a look at this week's sketch designed by Karolyn Loncon:


It's pretty rare that I make two cards for a challenge (especially a sketch challenge) but I actually came up with two versions:


I was inspired by the colours from the latest Paper Smooches Sparks challenge.  I used the Alphawhimsy dies for the "friend" and the flourish stamps and die from Flap Happy.  The first colour tripped my up a bit because it looks quite grey on the screen but when I printed it out to take to the Craft Cave it seemed a more beige colour.  So I covered my bases with these cards and made one using each colour. Which do you prefer? 
Be sure and head over to the CAS(E) This Sketch blog to check out all the gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the DT and then be sure to play along!

I'M NOT PICKING. YOU CAN'T MAKE ME.
I love them both! I think I might have a soft spot for the fun chevron borders on the first one :)

Nice! Can't really decide which I like more... maybe the second one, just by a bit. :)

Both versions are super cool! What a clever design for the hexagon shapes in the sketch. I especially love the tiny black pearls you used on the first card.
