Hello!  I’m sorry I’ve been posting so sporadically recently.  I’ve been away from home off and on over the last several weeks.

It’s time for the first sketch challenge of March at CAS Colours & Sketches.  It just seemed appropriate that my card for challenge #312 which starts on the date 3-12-19 (using American date formatting) should go to someone whose birthday is March 12.  🙂  I wasn’t feeling like going my usual route of butterflies or nicey-nice stuff and opted for a slightly snarky, humorous image and sentiment.  I hadn’t used this stamp from this set yet so this was a little challenging for me.  I colored the image with colored pencils blended with odorless mineral spirits.  I chose the purples in the color scheme based on the folders of cardstock I had out on my desk from my attempt to create something for last week’s CC&S challenge, and then I added the yellow as a nod to the school colors of the card recipient’s alma mater.  The dry embossed strip was a scrap I found in one of my cardstock folders, left over from a long-ago project, but perfect for today’s card.  I trimmed the bottom edge following the contours of the embossed circles as a way to incorporate the scalloped edge on the sketch.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you’ll make a card with this sketch and share it with us at CC&S. You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Monday, March 18 to link your card at the challenge site.

  1. Oh Goodness Patricia,

    You have me laughing way too loud first thing in the morning at your card. How FUN! I totally love the sentiment. And excellent eye popping yellow/purple which is absolutely perfect for your card. I like the embossing on your ribbon and also the pencil crayons are wonderful for your shading!

  2. Ha! That is so fun; love the image!

  3. This made me laugh. Would love to hop on one of those rides myself. xx
