CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #175

I'm a little bit early posting this as I was on a roll with my Swirly Birds stamp set and co-ordinating Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies.

When I saw this week's sketch I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

Caro, who set the challenge said that so long as there were 5 elements of differing sizes (harder to do than you think) and that they are on a diagonal (also harder to do than you think as you need to fit all five in) then effectively it's good to go!

This is what I came up with.

I stamped the images and sentiment in two of the new In Colors - Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim. I also added a Whisper White swirl that I had cut out using the new Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies.

The sentiment comes from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set. This is a great new photopolymer set that has 53 stamps in it. You can make up multiple sentiments and what's more there are banners that you can also stamp.

Here's a side view so you can see that I did decorate the inside. No naked insides for me!

Check back tomorrow to see what else I've been trying out.
