Hello there!  It’s sketch week at CAS Colours & Sketches and we have a nice little one for you with some simple shapes.

As I was looking through my stamps, trying to figure out how to use the oval shape in the sketch, I came to a set that has several speech balloons.  I decided it would be fun to use one of them for the oval, but realized then I’d need something to be speaking.  So I added a couple of cute little birdies to dress up the sketch a bit.  I picked out designer paper for the stripes of the sketch.  I had coordinating scraps that were just the right size for the speech balloon and the birds, so I stamped them and fussy cut them to add to the card.  The bird on the left is attached with a pop dot to give a little dimension to the card.  As I was getting ready to take the photo of the card, I thought it needed a little something extra, so I made a literal last-minute decision to round the bottom right corner of the card to echo the shape of the speech balloon.  It’s a tiny detail but I think it does perk up the card.
