Hello!  This week at CAS – Colours and Sketches Kylie has created a sketch for you to use in designing your card.

I needed a card for a couple who is celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, so that’s how I decided on the ivory and gold color scheme.  The tilted panel is dry embossed, although it ended up not showing too much.  Oh well.  None of my “happy anniversary” stamps seemed to fit the available space well, so I decided to use “congratulations” for the sentiment.  I was glad I had these matte finish gold brads for the flower centers because they coordinate with the brushed gold cardstock better than shiny brads would.

Be sure to visit the CAS – Colours and Sketches challenge blog to see the fantastic cards made by my fellow design team members!  Then show us what you can do with this sketch by linking your own card to the challenge blog.  You have until noon eastern time on August 30 to share your work.

Supplies:
Stamps: Delightful Dozen (Stampin’ Up)
Cardstock: Pure Luxury Ivory (Gina K. Designs); Brushed Gold Metallic (SU)
Ink: Gold (ColorBox)
Other: paper flowers (Prima Marketing); gold brads (Making Memories); D’Vine Swirls embossing folder (ProvoCraft)
