Hello there!  It’s time for another sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  This one has some fun stripes and a trio of elements that can be interpreted in a variety of ways.  You’re welcome to flip the sketch or rotate it on its side.  So long as we can see the basic idea of the sketch in your interpretation of it, it’s all good.

I’ve taken the liberty of stretching the sketch from a portrait-oriented rectangle to a landscape-oriented one.  This allowed me more width for the sentiment and the trio of elements.  I’ve chosen to use stars in place of the circles.  The die cut letters aren’t quite as bold as I’d like, but they were the ones that fit best on the card.  I’m also really disappointed that the texture of the white cardstock isn’t very noticeable. The red, white, and blue color scheme and the “thanks” theme are because this will be one last AnyHero card for me to send to Operation Write Home before the end of the month.

The color scheme and the “thanks” theme also tie this card into the following challenges:  Less is More, Addicted to CAS, and the OWH Our Daily Bread Designs challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you’ll check out what the rest of the design team has made, and then join us over at CAS Colours & Sketches with your own take on this sketch!  You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday, July 15 to link your card at the challenge website.

Supplies:
Stamps: none
Cardstock: Real Red, Brilliant Blue, Whisper White textured (Stampin’ Up)
