Hi there!  We have a fun sketch for you this week at CAS Colours & Sketches and I’m looking forward to seeing what our challenge participants create with it!

I guess I’m subconsciously wishing for winter weather because I decided to use snowflakes in place of the circles on the sketch. Besides, it’s time to start getting into holiday gear for Send a Smile 4 Kids.  My snowflake dies are larger than the sketch elements, but I think the idea of the sketch is still conveyed.  I cut the snowflakes from shimmery white cardstock, which is very pretty in person and very difficult to capture with the camera.  Some iridescent rhinestones add some extra sparkle for a more festive touch.  I turned the sketch on its side so the sentiment would better fit on the card.  The card still looked a little plain, so I pulled out a corner rounder and punched the bottom corners of the card.
