CAS(E) this Sketch #58 & some exciting news

*Note this is my third post for today.
Please scroll down to see my post for this week's Case Study Challenge 
& 10 Minute Craft Dash #32.

It's Thursday, which means a new sketch for CAS(E) this Sketch.
I have a card to share that I made for Sketch #58 by N@ Ali:



Here's my card:


 I stamped my sentiment on a strip of Teresa Collins patterned paper, layered over some rustic white cardstock and added some stitching.
I diecut my skis & stamped them, using some gold embossing powder for the bindings.
I added a diecut evergreen sprig once they were adhered to my card.

And, we have a very talented guest designer this week..... it's Sage!



Chrissy Larson emailed me earlier this week and asked if Sage would like to be the guest designer. 
Needless to say, she was thrilled!

Here's her card:



She used some Teresa Collins patterned paper for the background.
She stamped the owl & sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Winter Owl set
and coloured his scarf and nose and paper-pieced his eyes & tummy.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch and to play along, if you'd like.
You have some time.... we're taking a bit of a break for the holidays, so you have until
Thursday, January 9th to link up your card.

Thanks for looking!
