Hello!  This week is sketch week at CAS Colours & Sketches, and I think this week’s sketch is a pretty neat one.  It has a big curve that I think adds a fun touch to it.

The sketch actually reminded me a lot of some of the flap cards I’ve made in the past, and this one provided inspiration for today’s card.  I didn’t make this one with a flap, but I used the same color palette and the tree idea.  With autumn right around the corner, this seemed to fit with the change in season.  I cut a piece of white cardstock, used a die to form the curved shape, and then stamped the tree trunk image.  I sponged a sky and some grass around it before stamping the leaves.  I attached the panel to a card base in the color I used more dominantly in the leaves.  It’s hard to tell in the photo, but the card base is textured cardstock.  I added a simple sentiment and the card was done.

  1. Beautiful, love it!

  2. Stunning Autumnal CAS creation, fab use of the sketch. Hugs Bev x

  3. Wonderful! Love the autumn tree (I really do need to get that set, I love that tree).

  4. There’s a change in season coming? It doesn’t feel like it in New Jersey! Really great card, feels very natural and not trying to fit to a sketch or colour challenge. I really like the addition of the background so that the tree isn’t floating in space. Liz x
