Hello again!  This week at CAS Colours & Sketches we have a simple little sketch challenge up for the offering.

My husband celebrated his birthday last week, so my sample card for the challenge is the card I made for him.  I stretched the square sketch into a rectangle, and I used stars in place of the circles on the sketch.  The stamp I used for them actually has three stars together, but to add more interest to the card, I’ve used silver star-shaped brads to cover up the smallest stamped stars.  I also added a couple of clear rhinestones for a little more shine.  Punching the opposing corners at an angle also gives a little extra visual interest, tying in with the angles in the stars and the overall masculine feel of the card.

  1. I really like the punched corners – something to CASE there! Lovely sentiment, echoed by the stars. A great male card. Caro x

  2. Great masculine card! Love the brad for the 3rd star!

  3. Don’t those chopped off corners look fab – adds a whole new dimension to your card. Loving the shiny star brads and glam rhinestones.

  4. Fab CAS beauty and loving the angled opposing edges, adds great interest. Hugs Bev x

  5. I love how we’ve covered so many different occasions with just one sketch. I like the use of the brads in place of the third star. Hope your hubby enjoyed his birthday. Stef x

  6. Just the right touch of bling here to add a little extra without detracting from the CAS design. I like it ( and I’m pretty sure your husband will too!) It’s good to see another ‘occasion’ in the DT gallery, shows how versatile CAS can be!
