Hello!  It’s time for another sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  Our July hostess, Jane, has come up with a very nice and simple sketch.  Any shape can be used in place of the heart shape on the sketch graphic.  It’s OK to tweak the sketch by turning it on its side or changing it from an A2 sized card.  So long as we can see the basic elements of the sketch in your card, it’s all good.

In my last blog post, I told how my son’s girlfriend had housesat for us and watched our cat while we were away.  She’s taking classes this summer, so her mom also helped by feeding our cat at lunchtime.  Today’s card is the card we gave to her mom.  I’ve used a sweet little snoozing cat image in place of the heart on the sketch.  I wanted the cat to have a little bit of dimension, so I stamped it onto both the die-cut square and on a scrap of cardstock.  I colored the image on the scrap, fussy cut it, and used an embossing stylus around the cat’s head to make that part of the cat a little more prominent.  It doesn’t show in the photo, but it’s noticeable in real life.  Then I glued the colored image over the one stamped on the square.  The square has some scrap cardstock shims beneath it to give it a little bit of lift from the card base.
