Hello!  It’s time for the last challenge of the month at CAS Colours & Sketches.  This week we have a sketch challenge.  It’s a bit unusual with some interesting curvy elements.

The curved lines of the sketch made me think of one of my oldest Stampin’ Up stamp sets.  This set has four small border stamps, and three of the stamps have the images arranged in a curve.  I decided to go with the little bug design and paired it with an appropriate sentiment from a different stamp set.  I turned the sketch on its side.  For each pair of curved lines in the sketch, I used the bugs for the “upper” line, and drew in some grass for the “lower” line.  To add a little extra visual interest, I offset the mat behind the focal panel.  Although this isn’t the type of card I personally would send someone, I think it’ll be a cute one to donate to Send a Smile 4 Kids.
