5th Thursday

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. There is an extra Thursday in the month of October – and that means today’s challenge is a double: #49 – sketch & colors.

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #49

And here is my take:

by karen @ carefree creations - Thank You Flowers

I’ll admit, this sketch threw me – just so many options to fill in the focal panel. I really wanted to do something a little unexpected.

For the focal panel, I chose a large bold sentiment (so large it falls over the card base edge both top and bottom!); and stamped the flowers where the smaller rectangle would be. I love that this is is just one additional layer (do you count mats when counting layers?).

Speaking of layers – mine might be a bit wonky….my trimmer finally gave up a couple days ago. And I don’t have a backup! Good thing I have a t-ruler 🙂 Hopefully by next week I’ll have not only a working trimmer, but a backup too!

Make sure you check out the other design team members:

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

  1. I love your bold sentiment that hangs over the edges- really eye-catching. The flowers are beautifully stamped – excellent job!
