Wow!  Today marks the beginning of the 100th challenge at CAS – Colours and Sketches!  What a milestone!  Lizy, our challenge hostess for November, has drawn up a nice little sketch for us to work with this week.  You’re welcome to change up the shapes a bit or turn the sketch on its side, just so long as we can recognize the general idea of the sketch.  I’ve stretched it into a rectangle for my card.

I’ve been on a bit of a kick lately to use up some older supplies, and that carried through on today’s card.  I had one remaining red poinsettia from a package of paper flowers, so I decided to use that as the focal point of the card.  The red cardstock is a color that’s been retired for a while, and I already had this card base cut to size, waiting to be used.  The green and vanilla cardstocks used here were scraps left over from other projects.  I just dressed them up by cutting the vanilla into the banner shapes and by stamping some small starbursts on the green.  The only “new” things here are the stamp sets I used and the package of pearls I opened to get the sizes I wanted for the center of the poinsettia.


I’m also entering this card into the current challenge at AEIHeartU.  It’s been a while since I’ve played along there.
