CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge # 224

I hope you enjoyed my challenge last week. This week it's the turn of Emily to host, and being the third Tuesday of the month, it means that it's time for a sketch challenge.

Here's what Emily has for us.

Don't forget you can rotate or flip the sketch, but I decided to leave it as is.  This is what I have made using the Floral Phrases and Crazy About You stamp sets.

I'm such a sucker for Rich Razzleberry cardstock and ink, and because I had a piece of the cardstock  sitting on my desk I decided to use it. I paired it with a bit of Blushing Bride to give a contrast.

I did take the liberty of moving the sentiment slightly and have it overhang the Rich Razzleberry strip.

To make the card I used:
  • Thick Whisper White card base - A5 (21.0 x 14.9 cm) scored and folded at 10.5 cm
  • Strip of Rich Razzleberry cardstock - 14.9 x  stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink to give a tone on tone effect.
  • Strip of Blushing Bride cardstock - 1.5 x 8.0 cm stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink with sentiment made up of words from the Crazy About You stamp set (retiring 31 May).
  • Circle of Whisper White cardstock  (3.5 cm or 1-3/8") - stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink using the Floral Phrases stamp set and then glued to circles of Blushing Bride )and Rich Razzleberry cardstock.
I then adhered the stamped images and sentiment to the base card using glue and dimensionals.

Don't forget to pop over to the CAS Colours & Sketches blog to see what the others have been up to. The link is there if you fancy entering your own card in the challenge.

  1. I thought this card looked like it could have been part of last week's color challenge. I'm glad I have company in using what is still hanging around on my desk (including stamp sets that don't seem to get put away!!). Great use of the sketch and a sweet card, Fiona!

  2. This is one of my favorites this week! Love the colors and the layering and the border stamp - so many wonderful details.

  3. This is so elegant looking and I love the use of the tone on tone effect!

  4. Beautiful and elegant, love your colour choice and it really suits the stamps. Apologies for being so late coming by to comment. Hugs Bev x
