Hello!  The design team from CAS Colours & Sketches is back from holiday break and ready to begin another year of fun clean and simple challenges!  Since today is the second Tuesday of the month, we’re starting back up again with a sketch.  You’re welcome to manipulate the sketch from a rectangle to a square, or to turn the sketch on its side, so long as we can still easily recognize the main elements of the sketch.

Over the holidays, our family went out of town for a few days to visit relatives, so we had a neighbor friend come over to check on our cat a couple of times each day.  I used this week’s sketch to create a card to thank our friend for his help.  Our cat is solid black, so that’s why I chose the simple black and white color scheme for the card.  The tiny paw prints were stamped on a scrap of plain white cardstock cut to fit the small metal frame, and the card base is plain black cardstock, but the rest of the cardstock I used is textured.  Unfortunately, the texture doesn’t show in the photo.  The texture of the grosgrain ribbon behind the metal frame doesn’t show well either.  Since we gave the card to our friend in person, I didn’t have to worry about sending the somewhat bulky frame element through the mail.
