CAS(E) This Sketch #253 -- Retro CTS #107

Today, I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #253 designed by N@ Ali:

I decided to use my new Rose Builder set from Wplus9 to make my card.

I started by diecutting my images and stamping them with Altenew ink: Frosty Pink,
Cotton Candy, Coral Berries, Ruby Red and Papertrey Ink ink: Limeade Ice, 
Simply Chartreuse and Ripe Avocado.
I blended Altenew Mountain Mist ink onto the top part of my panel and 
flicked on some Lagoon ink mixed with water.

I stamped my sentiment using PTI's Tropics, in Altenew Jet Black ink.

And here is the card I made originally for the sketch, back in January 2015:

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 until Thursday, January 11th to link up your card.

Thanks for looking!

Such a pretty cards! The Rose Builder set looks beautiful! So fun to be able to stamp the colors instead of coloring. Coloring is fun but sometimes it's nice to skip that step!

Thanks for sharing your original design for this sketch, Leigh. It's always nice to see the first card! Your 'new' design is really pretty, too! Those roses are stunning, and I love the pinks that you've chosen for them. I do love the bitty splatters, and the bold, black sentiment as well. Wonderful card! Happy New Year to you! Bev

Happy New Year!!
May this New Year be special in every way ... bringing you the gift of love and excitement.
I will introduce Japanese New Year's customs.
In Japan, there is a New Year holiday where family and relatives get together.
On New Year, Japanese children receive gifts of money known as "Otoshidama".
Otoshidama is given to children by adult relatives such as uncles, aunts and grandparents.
The amount of Otoshidama grows as the child older, for example, 1000 yen for children under 10, and 3000 yen for children over 10.
Otoshidama is one of the exciting traditions of New Year, which children look forward to very much.
