Hello!  It’s a little hard to believe March is drawing to a close already and it’s almost Easter.  Time sure seems to be flying!  As today is the fourth Tuesday of the month, we have a new sketch challenge for you to try over at CAS Colours & Sketches.  This week we have a nice little one for you with some simple shapes.

Since I’m thinking ahead to making Mother’s Day and Father’s Day cards for Send a Smile 4 Kids, and I had a Father’s Day stamp that fit the sketch nicely, that’s how I decided the theme for today’s card.  The cardstock for the large ivory rectangle has a bit of a linen texture to it that is really hard to capture in photos.  I used a scrap of designer paper for the banner element and took the green from it for the card base and ink.  The sentiment panel has shims of scrap cardstock raising it up from the card front for a little dimensional interest.  Even though the card has a few layers, it’s still quite clean and simple in style.

What will you do with this sketch?  There are so many possibilities!  I hope you’ll try out something and share what you create with us!  Link your work to the CAS Colours & Sketches blog by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Monday, April 2.  Thanks for stopping by today!

All supplies for this card are from Stampin’ Up.
