CAS Colours & Sketches #106

A special day for me today. It's my debut as part of the DT for Cas Colours & Sketches! I'm so thrilled about this, I think I've been a fan of their challenges ever since I started blogging.

So this week it's a sketch and here it is:

I knew I'd got a stamp that was that banner shape and that's where I started. Next I stamped the rose - a three stage stamp using three colours. I added the stem and felt this sort of echoed the oval from the sketch.

The final touches were the sentiment and the trio of pearls. I'm feeling quite pleased with my finished card and hope it inspires you to create today.

Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Sweet Rose, Journal It
Inks: SU, daffodil delight, calypso coral, melon mambo, old olive; Memento, tuxedo black
Embellishments: Papermania, adhesive pearls

Thank you so much for spending time at my blog. Hope you'll use the sketch and join in at CAS Colours & Sketches, looking forward to visiting your blogs.
