Hello there!  It’s sketch challenge week at CAS Colours & Sketches and I think we have a good one for you this time.

The one rectangular area of the sketch looked to me like an image panel.  It took me a little while to choose what to put in it.  I finally decided on this cute otter image and started pulling out supplies for the rest of the card – and was happily surprised to find this same otter, already stamped and colored (except for the bow), in my file folder with the blue cardstock and watery designer paper!  So I colored the bow to match and carefully fussy cut the otter.  I added some stamped waves to the designer paper.  Although the otter image is actually from a Christmas themed stamp set, it works perfectly well with the birthday sentiment too!

Now it’s your turn to create a card with this sketch!  If you need more inspiration first, you can check out what the rest of the CC&S Design Team has made.  Then link your card at the challenge site by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Monday, August 19.  We’d love to have you join us!
