Hello!  It’s time for a Timeless Tuesday double challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches!  We’ve gone through our sketch archives and pulled out one of our previous sketches, and we’re pairing it with some retired Stampin’ Up colors.  To meet the challenge this week, the sketch must be used with the colors.  If you don’t have the exact colors it’s OK –  just use whatever you own that comes close to them.

I’ve been away from my craft room for much of the past week, and I have to confess that last night when I was working on this card, I had a hard time getting into a crafting frame of mind.  This is definitely not one of my better cards but it meets the challenge so I’m going with it.  I used the lighter shade of blue for the card base and used the darker for the sentiment.  I rotated the sketch 180° so that I had a wider space at the top of the card for the sentiment.  Instead of using a piece of cardstock for the wide horizontal strip, I scored five lines.  It was hard to capture them in the photo, but they do extend across the entire front of the card.  It’s been a long time since I’ve used ribbon on a card, but I had the exact color of blue to work with the challenge.  I debated adding a bow, but I thought that would take away from the clean and simple style of the card.  The “present” is raised up from the card base with dimensional adhesive.
