CAS Colours & Sketches #152

The last of November's challenges at CAS Colours & Sketches begins today. Woo, the end of November is approaching so fast!

I love the simplicity of Louise's sketch and tried to honour this with my card.

I chose clean bright colours and die cut two circles from patterned paper. I picked out the red and die cut the thanks.  Then I felt it needed just a little something to ground it and tried the splatter stamp from SU Gorgeous Grunge but wasn't pleased with the result. So I opted for the grungy lines instead and think that is just enough to help the flow of the sentiment across the card.

I then rounded the corners of both the circle panel and card base to echo the curved lines of the circles.

Stmaps: SU, Gorgeous Grunge
Inks: SU, sahara sand
Paper: SU, Fresh Prints
Dies: Lawn Fawn, Scripty Thanks; Spellbinders, standard circles small
Punch: Xcut, corner rounder

It's over to you now, how will you interpret the sketch? Remember to visit the CAS Colours & Sketches blog to be amazed by the rest of the DT creations and then get busy. 

Thanks for dropping by today, I love that you found time to look at my blog.  And keep crafting!

  3. Perfect CAS design Jane and I love the addition of the grungy lines, they really 'make' the card. Stef x

  4. What a fantastic color scheme you chose. I agree that the grungy lines help ground the sentiment - and they play well with the striped designer paper, too. Super job, Jane!
