CAS(E) this Sketch #242 - thinking of you at christmas

I made a quick card today for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch #242.

Here's Leigh's pretty sketch.

I used a Clarity brush for the first time to stencil the circle. As I heard in a lot of good reviews, it was amazing! I often had a problem with ink applicator marks, especially when I stencil this kind of open flat space, but with this brush you don't get any marks. It's a life saver for me.

I curved the sentiment stamp to match the swish strip and then stamped it with the help of Misti. Photopolymer stamps are flexible, so you can do this easily

I'm linking up this card to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Thinking of you).
