Hi there!  February may be almost over, but we still have one more challenge for you at CAS Colours & Sketches before the month runs out.  This time we have a sketch challenge for your consideration.

My older son celebrated his birthday earlier this month, so I used this sketch with some scraps of designer paper to create his birthday card.  Stef, our challenge hostess, has said that we can substitute any shape in place of the flower on the sketch, so I’ve used a birthday present.  This gift package stamp is actually from a Christmas-themed stamp set, but I think the image works just as well for birthdays, too.  I chose a polka-dotted print for the wrapping paper on the gift, with a coordinating solid color for the ribbon and bow.  I have to admit that the fussy cutting was pretty tedious, especially around the loops and tails of the bow.  Strips of two additional coordinating designer papers were put to use for my banner elements.  A simple sentiment finished off the card.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the CC&S Design Team and our February guest designer have made.  Then make your own card following the sketch and link it to the challenge site by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday, March 2.  We’d love to have you join in the fun and creativity with us!  Thanks for stopping by today!
