It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:


And here is my take:

Congrats | by karen @ carefree creations

I recently bought the layered banner, but hadn’t used it yet. I thought it would be a good focal piece for this sketch. I used school colors for the banner and then my favorite yellow for the stars.

The sentiment is embossed and, I must say, I think this is the best I’ve ever done with embossing! I do think the powder quality helped a lot, but dang – so smooth and no little extra dots. I love it when it works right!

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Karen – this was a fun sketch, thanks for that. I love the stripes inside the banner, it makes it really pop and look incredibly realistic. Such fun. Liz x
