Birthday Blues

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge -> #10 – colors & sketch. Since this is a bonus week in the month – you get both a sketch and colors to work with!


And here is my take:

Karen @ Carefree Creations: Birthday Blues

I’m not normally one to combine challenges, but when I do, I start with the colors – because, to me, they dictate the type of card I’ll be making. Though I will admit that if I can make a birthday card, that is what I’ll do (and did in this instance).

I did have some other thoughts – blue bringing to mind snow or sympathy, but once I found this sentiment I knew the blues would work for a birthday card.

I didn’t want the arrows to overpower the sentiment, so I made sure they were the lightest shade of blue. The frame is medium blue, and the sentiments are dark.

The frame is popped-up on dimensionals – but everything (including the framed sentiment) is stamped directly on the white card base.

Thanks for stopping by!

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!
