Hello there!  It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for a new challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  Karen has come up with a very simple little sketch to use this week.

I have to admit, it’s such a versatile sketch that I was a little overwhelmed with all the possibilities for it.  I finally decided to combine the sketch challenge with the current challenge at Less is More, which is to use something tactile on a clean and simple styled card.  I have a bunch of paper flowers that I bought years ago – and by “years ago”, I mean that I used a similar one of these on a card for my son’s preschool teacher, and now he’s getting ready to start his senior year of high school.  Yep!  So I decided to use one on today’s card.  I’ve added a little extra purple sponging to the edges of the petals to help it coordinate a bit better with the purple cardstock that matched it best.  It’s probably very hard to see in the photo, but the white cardstock is linen textured.  A simple flowing sentiment completes the card.
