Hello there!  It’s sketch challenge week at CAS Colours & Sketches.  Normally we don’t mind when our participants take a few liberties with our sketches, so long as the sketch elements can still be easily identified; however, this week we hope that the angular shape is retained in the challenge submissions.

I felt like I wanted to make some sort of little scene in the diamond shape.  I had a few extra backgrounds from when I made my family’s Christmas cards a few years ago, so I decided to use one of them.  I die cut it into the diamond shape and added some shimmery paint “snowflakes”.  (Or maybe they are stars in the sky.  I haven’t decided.)  I die cut a little scene of trees and snowy ground from another piece of cardstock and glued it into place once the shimmery paint had dried.  The card base is made of the same shimmery white cardstock used for all the other card elements.  After stamping a simple sentiment and attaching the diamond panel to the card front, the card was done.
