CAS Colours & Sketches #182

Today sees the start of a sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches and it's my turn to be hostess.

I designed this sketch way back in June as I wanted to make an earth view shaker card for my grandson's birthday. He's very into space and Star Wars, so I thought he might enjoy this little twist on a shaker card.

I die cut the stitched aperature and placed a photo of the earth from space behind it. I then added some star and luminescent sequins on top before sealing the shaker window.

I chose dark blue card to represent the darkness of space and added a simple white die cut sentiment below the shaker window.

Dies: MFT Die-namics, Peek-a-Boo Circle Window; Lawn Fawn, Happy Birthday Border

Sequins: Lucy's Cards, star shine

You'll be pleased to know he had a fabulous birthday with a barbecue on the beach - toasting marshmallows was involved - and a fabulous sweet filled birthday cake.

I hope you'll join in and play along with my sketch. Check out the rest of the DT cards at CC&S and then be inspired and get your crafting hat on!

Thanks for looking today, I really appreciate your time. And keep crafting!
