Hello!  Welcome to the start of a new year of challenges at CAS Colours & Sketches!  We’re back from our holiday break and ready to begin another year of fun clean and simple challenges! Since today is the second Tuesday of the month, we’re starting back up again with a sketch.

Even though the snow we had in December has melted and become just a memory, I couldn’t resist pulling out one of my favorite snowman stamps and using it for today’s card.  Except for the card base, I used only scraps of cardstock for this card!  Yay!  I used shimmery white for all of the white cardstock.  I colored the snowman with Copics and fussy cut him – and cutting around his arms and scarf reminded me why I usually use his matching die when I want to cut him out.  Oh well.  I used a swirly die to cut the swooping horizontal line element of the sketch twice and stacked them for extra dimension.  I debated using kraft cardstock for the base, but felt the white-on-white gave the card a more wintry feel. The sentiment comes from a different stamp set than the snowman.

Be sure to stop by the challenge blog and welcome our newest Design Team members, Holly and YoonYoung!  Then create your own card using this sketch, and link it to the challenge site by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Monday, January 14.  We’d love to have you join us!  Thanks for stopping by today.
