Hello!  I’ve been enjoying hosting the challenges throughout January at CAS Colours & Sketches, but today marks the last challenge of the month.  This time we have a sketch that I think leaves a lot of possibilities for fun.  It has one big tilted panel that can be dressed up in whatever clean and simple design you desire.

My area of Virginia got hit with about 19 inches of snow from the “Snowzilla” storm last weekend.  Although the roads are all pretty clear now and students are back at school, the ground is still white in most places.  While I do enjoy a good snowstorm, my cardmaking thoughts have been leaning toward something more spring-like.  I don’t know if that’s left over from my years of making cards for Operation Write Home, where we used to plan for seasons in advance, or exactly what.  But anyway, I decided to use a flowery designer paper and chose my color scheme around it.  I originally planned to do the tilted panel similar to the card shown here and pair the flowery paper with a polka dot paper in the same colors.  Then I felt that would be too busy.  So I ended up using only the flowery paper.  I used one of the dominant colors in it for the card base, and another for die-cutting the sentiment.  Oh, I’ve also turned the sketch 90° on its side, so that the sentiment is mostly right side up.

Don’t let that tilted panel stump you when you try the sketch.  Simply cut a panel the size of your card front, add whatever CAS design you like to it, then angle it when you attach it to the base of your card.  Trim off the excess and there you have it!

Be sure to check out what the rest of the CC&S Design Team and our January guest designer have made.  Then make your own card following the sketch and link it to the challenge site by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday, February 3.  We’d love to have you join in the fun and creativity with us!  Thanks for stopping by today!
