Hello hello!  I hope the month of June has gotten off to a good start for you.  As usual at CAS Colours & Sketches, we start off the month with a color challenge.  Our challenge hostess, Wei, has chosen some bright and cheery colors for us.

It’s been a while since I’ve played along at CAS(E) this Sketch! but I liked the simplicity of this week’s sketch.  I decided to use dies rather than stamps to create my focal point.  After I cut the “lines” of the rose from pumpkin colored cardstock, I attached the die cut to a scrap of bright pink cardstock and then fussy cut around it to get my rose blossom.  I originally planned to attach the small scalloped rectangle directly to the card base, and stacked it with an extra rectangle underneath to give it more dimension and definition.  But the card still seemed too plain, so I decided to add a pop of pink underneath it.  The sentiment comes from one of my oldest stamp sets and is stamped in green ink to match the leaves.  That makes this another birthday card for the challenge at AAA Cards.
