Hi there!  It’s Thursday again, which means it’s time for a new challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  This week we have a sketch for you to follow.  I think it’s a pretty fun one that could be interpreted in several different ways.

I’ve stayed pretty true to the sketch the way it was drawn, except that I’ve stretched it out into a portrait-oriented rectangle.  I also opted to put my sentiment on the oval element of the sketch rather than just below it.  I used pennant stamps to create my banner, and hand-drew the string connecting them.  After I cut the oval panel for the sentiment, I cut a slightly larger oval from the focal panel to “frame” the sentiment, rather than cutting a mat for it.  The sentiment panel is adhered with dimensional adhesive so it pops up a bit from the rest of the card front.  Although there isn’t much chocolate brown here, the color scheme was taken from CC&S challenge #60.


So long as we can see the basic elements of the sketch in your card, it’s all good!  What kind of card will you create with it?  We’d love to see!  Share it with us via the linky tool on the challenge post by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday, June 3.  Happy crafting!

All supplies for this card are from Stampin’ Up except as noted:
Stamps: Big Day, Banner Blast
Cardstock: Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Naturals White
Ink: Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz
Other: Chocolate Chip marker, dimensionals; petite oval plain Nestabilities dies (Spellbinders)

  1. Love your subtle colours, bit like your blog title banner. And on my screen that hand drawn string is really popping and looking 3D.

  2. I always feel that I need color on the top card layer to really bring it to life but I love the blue and green layers with this wonderful natural color. The alternating pennants are so pretty and the hand drawn string was a perfect idea! Thanks for sharing

  3. Fun little banner, I like the hand drawn string. Very modern, CAS card I like it!

  4. Thanks for all your support Patricia. I’ve really enjoyed my first month as hostess. Yours is a very true interpretation but it’s been interesting to see all the different takes on the sketch. Stef x
