CAS(E) this sketch...the First Challenge!

This is my second post today.  It's just a short
scroll down for the blog hop!

The day is finally here for the first CAS(E) this sketch! challenge.  Here's the first sketch...

Can you see the Clean And Simple (CAS) possibilities?  Remember that the sketch is a guideline.  You can flip it, rotate it, change the's just inspiration!  But keep it CAS!

Here's how I was inspired...

Happy Harlequin
The fun on this card is the patterns.  There's so much wonderful white space but the fun patterns keep it interesting!
