Hello there!  It’s the fourth Thursday of the month, which means it’s time for another sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.

I’ve taken a few liberties with the sketch.  I’ve stretched it into a portrait-oriented rectangle and added a mat behind the focal panel.  The way the sketch is drawn seems to suggest trees, but I’ve rotated it 180° and turned the triangular shapes into balloons.  I wanted a little variation in the balloon strings, so I’ve trimmed down the one on the yellow balloon.  The orange balloon has some cardstock shims behind it for just a little bit of dimension.  The card ended up pretty simple and straightforward, but it will be a good one to send to Send a Smile 4 Kids. Since there isn’t much else to say about it, here it is:
