CC&S #313 – Happy Birthday

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

And here is my take:

Blue Green Leaves | by karen h @ carefree creations

After some time, I finally chose which stamp set I was going to use and was trying to figure out how to work in the Sahara Sand (what color IS that any way??). Since that is a pale color, I thought it would be good as a background element.

I started by stamping my focal sentiment in dark grey (kinda wishing I had gone dark brown instead, but ya know, done is done). Then filled in the back with the images from the sentiment stamp set. Finally, I stamped the leaves.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love the layers of stamping and the different ‘happy birthday’s you’ve used. A simple idea, so cleanly and beautifully executed.
