Graphic Birthday

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge -> #23 – colors.

CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge 23

And here is my take:

by Karen @ Carefree Creations - PTI Sketched Shapes

My first thought for these colors was a sports-themed card, but I don’t need any such card right now. So I did what I do when I have colors but no theme – graphic design.

This time I broke out the new Sketched Shapes by Maile Belles (for Papertrey Ink). This girl knows how to make clean and simple graphic cards! I am always in awe of her projects. I tried to channel a little of Maile’s style when I made this card.

I did change the So Saffron to Crushed Curry because I wanted the yellow to show up on the white background.

The card is a little narrower than a normal A2. The card base is 4 x 5.5. My original intent was to place the white panel against one side and let the blue peek around 3 edges, but this configuration looked much better.

Make sure you check out the other design team members:

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!
