CAS(E) this Sketch

CAS(E) this Sketch is a new sketch challenge block in town, I've been coming across it just about everywhere and I like CAS(E) this sketch No.2 so I thought I would give it a bash.  Here is the sketch:


And here is my very CAS card!

Hopefully not too "dark" for XMas but the black signifies the evening sky filled with the stars from some pretty paper from Memory Box called "Yuletide".  The stamps are from PTI.  I stamped the dove using Evergreen Bough distress ink and then covered the image with some Stickles and a paintbrush.

Hopefully I have just made the cut off time!

Have a wonderful day.
