Hello there!  It’s the second Thursday of the month, which means it’s time for another sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.

I’ve used the mirror image of the sketch because it just seemed to work better with placing the sentiment I chose.  I decided to combine the sketch challenge with the color challenge at Less is More and the theme challenge at Addicted to CAS.  I stamped the birdies, the notes, and the sentiment with very dark brown ink.  I colored the birds to coordinate with the dusty blue of the card base and the sandy brown of the background banner.  It’s really a quite simple little card so without further chitchat, here it is:

Since the birdies do have wings, I’ve decided to enter into the theme challenge at Cards in Envy, too.  I recently stepped down from the design team there due to time constraints in my personal life, but I still love the concept of their challenges (making cards that are flat enough to easily fit “in envy” – in an envelope – to be mailed) so I don’t think I’ll be able to completely stay away from there!  😉

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to check out the CAS Colours & Sketches blog to see what the rest of the design team has done with this sketch.  Then make your own card and link it to the challenge post.  You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday, August 17 to participate.  We hope you’ll join us!

Supplies:
Stamps: Love Quotes (Mama Elephant); Pa-Rum-Pa-Pum-Pum (Lawn Fawn)
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Kraft (Stampin’ Up); Pure Luxury Ivory (Gina K. Designs)
Ink: Early Espresso (SU)
Other: markers (Copic)
