Here’s a quick and easy CAS card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches and Dynamic Duos challenges.  Since it’s Valentine season at Operation Write Home, I chose to use a love theme for my card.  I mixed stamp companies here – the frog, heart and grass images are from Lawn Fawn, and the sentiment is from Stampin’ Up.  I don’t often do that, but the images in the SU set were a bit too large for this card layout.  I considered using ribbon for the banner-like strips behind the focal point.  But I had so many narrow scraps of Certainly Celery cardstock that I felt I should put them to use instead.  So I dusted off my crimper to give the cardstock strips some visual and textural interest.
