CAS Colours & Sketches Guest Designer Take 2


Hi there!  I'm back for my second week of guest designing for CAS Colours & Sketches.  

This week we have a sketch challenge:



I broke out some NBUS items for my card which seemed to perfectly capture the sketch.  The wreath and bird are from Lil' Inker Designs with a banner from Paper Smooches and a sentiment from Fresh Squeezed stamps (sadly closed).  It came together quickly once I finally decided on the colours for my bird - I could have dithered forever on that!

Be sure to check out the inspiration from the Design Team and then play along!  You have until 6pm Eastern Time on Monday, 20 March.    


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Textured White) Bazzill, (White) Papertrey Ink, (CPear Pizzazz, Chocolate Chip) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Bird from The Little Things) Lil' Inker Designs, (Sentiment from You Said It Sister) Fresh Squeezed Stamps
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Wreath) Lil' Inker Designs, (Flag) Paper Smooches
Gems:  Recollections

I realised that I hadn't commented on this card, even though we discussed it. I didn't use the same wreath in the end, I got a bit creative. I really like the bright birdie in the middle of the wreath, really pops against the white card. Clairex

Love how the bird sits on and draws your eye to the sentiment. Great use of the sketch. x
