Hello there!  August has five Tuesdays, so that means it’s Timeless Tuesday double challenge week at CAS Colours & SketchesKaren and I combined forces for creating this week’s challenge – she chose a previous CC&S sketch to use, and I picked some of Stampin’ Up’s retired colors to use with it.  Although we use Stampin’ Up color names for reference, you may use any companies’ products to make your card, so long as you match the colors closely.  You’re also welcome to stretch the square format of the sketch into a rectangular card, and/or turn the sketch on its side.

At first the colors suggested two things to me:  flowers and babies.  I ended up going with a different nature-related thing:  birds.  I stamped the birds and their branch on scraps of cardstock and fussy cut them to add to the blue background circle.  I didn’t fussy cut around their legs, though, because that’s tooooo fussy.  So I drew the legs back into place as I was assembling the focal point.  For the vertical strip, I stamped dots in each of the challenge colors onto a scrap of white cardstock, and matted it with pink and green.  I chose a sentiment to tie into the “friends” theme going on at Addicted to CAS.
