Hello there!  It’s the last Tuesday of the month, which means that it’s sketch week at CAS Colours & Sketches.  I really like the angled panel in this sketch because it provides a lot of fun creative opportunities.

I checked out a few other challenges before creating my card and combined them with the sketch challenge.  Less is More is challenging their participants to use up bits and pieces leftover from other projects, and AAA Cards wants to see frames on cards.  I chose a scrap piece of floral patterned paper which (I think) coordinates well with this stamp that combines a floral image with a sentiment.  Because of the way the flower image is oriented, I thought it would look better to use the mirror image of the sketch.  I cut a frame for the vertical rectangle from a scrap of cardstock in a coordinating color.  Instead of coloring the image, I decided to cover the petals with a Prima flower, held in place with a tiny brad.  I’ve used shims of scrap cardstock to add dimension behind the vertical panel.
