Hello hello!  I’ve been enjoying creating the challenges for CAS Colours & Sketches throughout August, and now it’s time to close out the month with a sketch challenge.

I drew up this sketch as a landscape-oriented rectangle.  As I was die cutting the starburst shapes, I realized that the size die that I chose was a little small, so I turned my card into a portrait-oriented rectangle instead.  I also added a couple of stars to better fill in the space.  The striped paper is actually a tag that came with this designer paper collection.  I haven’t been using the tags, and it was just the right size to fit across the card front, so I decided to use that instead of the “normal” designer paper.  I think it’s a pretty cool gender neutral card perfect for a kid of any age, so I’m going to submit it to the current Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge.  I’m also going to link it to the current challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.

  1. I really like your card! Saw it at SAS4Kids, and had to come have a closer look. I personally tend to struggle with creating CAS cards, so I really admire anyone who can do it this well. Love the softer colors you chose. Tfs! ~ Andrea
