CAS Colours & Sketches #117

Seems you did like my colour choices at CAS Colours & Sketches last week. Thanks for all your beautiful creations. And I can't believe it's already time for the last challenge of my first stint as challenge hostess.

This week it's a sketch and I already had my card made in my head when I created it.

A super quick, super simple card, but very post friendly with no raised parts.

The strip down the left hand side is a piece of doodlebug paper that I've been hoarding for a while - can't bear to think it's nearly all gone! This would make such an amazing stamp, wondering if there is one like it out there - do let me know if there is.

I matched the colours for the flowers to the paper, but couldn't resist adding a pop of turquoise for the sentiment. And yes I've used that big spotty and small solid combination again!

Stamps: Uniko Studio, Background Builders Vines, Flower Power #5; Clealry Besotted, Happy Birthday
Inks: SU, melon mambo, tempting turquoise, daffodil delight
Paper: Doodlebug, Take Note

As the theme at Uniko Studio is anything goes I'm popping this card into their challenge.

Thanks for coming by today, hope you have fun with my sketch. As always loads more inspiration can be found from the talented DT.  And keep crafting!
