Hi there!  It’s the fifth Thursday of March, and that means it’s time for a double challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches!  “Double challenge” means that we provide the sketch and the colors for you to use for your clean and simple styled card.  It’s not as difficult as it might sound!

Jane has given us a nice, bright color scheme and a simple, straightforward sketch to work with.  I’ve used a cute little butterfly for the image and paired it with a happy sentiment.  The butterfly was colored with my Copic markers.  To give a little extra visual interest to the blue strip, I stamped it with a background stamp.  I chose to mat the butterfly and sentiment panels just to make the chocolate brown color more prominent.  I think it’ll be a cute card to add to the ones I’m stockpiling to donate to Send a Smile 4 Kids.  This week is “Make Your Mark” challenge week at Addicted to Stamps and More, so I’m going to enter this card into that challenge.
