Hello, and Happy Thanksgiving to all my American visitors!

As usual on Thursdays, there’s a new challenge being presented at CAS Colours & Sketches.  This week it’s a sketch challenge.  I thought the offset half-circles were really interesting!  I’ve used two different designer papers and matted them.  The easy way to make them was to cut them with a circle-shaped die, and then to cut the circles in half.  Since that resulted in two half-circles in each design, I’ve gone ahead and made two cards, which will both be sent in a few days to Send a Smile 4 Kids.  I changed up the orientation of the card and the sentiment, but otherwise all the materials are the same.   The white panel is textured cardstock, which unfortunately doesn’t show the texture in the photos.

  1. A duo of CAS delight, great use of the sketch & I love how you rotated the first to a landscape card. Thank you for having me as a Guest Designer this month at CC&S Hugs Bev x

  2. That little extra border on the semi circles just does it! And I love how the sketch looks rotated.

  3. Brilliant! I think the sketch is very interesting and both your cards are just super. Clean, crisp and just super! Nicely done xx

  4. I love the sense of movement in these cards! Great sketch.

  5. What a cool sketch, Patricia. I really like the Noel one, the way the word die-cut works with the circles looks fab.

  6. Two fab cards for the effort of one! Can’t go wrong with that, and these two are both very eye catching. Love the curvy feel to both cards, but especially the rotated one. Excellent job
