AAA Cards Challenge #131 Sketch + Optional Twist Pastel Colours

Wow! One week of 2019 is almost over!  Time to shout out about the first New Year Challenge at AAA Cards then!

Here's the sketch:

I decided to keep everything nice and simple - well it has to be CAS with plenty of white space anyway - and just added three strips of washi tape and a die cut greeting. It was quite tricky to line up the washi strips and I used a ruler and my craft mat as an aid.

I die cut the greeting in black as a strong contrast to the pinky purples and used a vibrant pink card base. So no pastel colours for me then! And it looks like it's time to change the blade on my trimmer!

Die: Lawn Fawn, Happy Birthday border
Washi from my stash
