CAS(E) this Sketch has a fabulous sketch this week. As I’m on hols with family, I’ve only today managed to find some time to create a card for the challenge. I’ve been trying to sneak away all week to play along!
I am in LOVE with these leaves from Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies. I knew I wanted to use them as soon as I saw the sketch. I cut off a strip of the stripe-y DSP from Merry Little Christmas DSP that I thought worked perfectly with the sketch. What colour works best with Old Olive? Crumb Cake……however, I forgot to bring some with me….. The only cardstock I had in a similar colour was the backing board from a make and take from an Onstage Event that I had somehow packed. Even though it’s not quite Crumb Cake, I think it works well. As this backing board is really thick the die wouldn’t cut the entire way through so my leaves were a little crushed when I separated them. I figure that’s how leaves look when they’ve fallen to the ground anyway.
The sentiment that I’ve used was chosen because it fit in my Label Punch. The sentiment is from Petal Palette. I added a bit of a washed look behind the sentiment with my Old Olive Watercolor Pencil.
I just noticed my ribbon is a tad offline at the top……I’ve now lined it up properly, but have already put away my light tent and it’s too late to pull it out again to take another photo.
Here’s my card:
Thanks for stopping by.
