Hello there!  It’s the fourth Thursday of the month, which means it’s time for another sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.

I’ve turned the sketch on its side for my card.  Although our hostess, Jane, has said that other shapes can be used in place of the five rectangles, I was having a hard time figuring what else I might use.  So I just stayed true to the sketch there and used the rectangles to ground part of the sentiment on my card.  For the word “happy”, I die cut the letters, stamped the outlines on them, and then colored them.  I die cut an extra set of the letters so that I could stack them for extra dimension.  The “birthday” part of the sentiment is stamped.  I like the contrast of the colorful, rounded lower case letters with the narrow black upper case letters.
