Hello!  This week at CAS Colours & Sketches, we have a very simple sketch for you to try!

I have to confess that for how simple the sketch appears, I struggled with it.  I fully admit that I’m my own worst critic, but my first attempt ended up looking to me like something a four-year-old might make, so I went back to the proverbial drawing board.  I wanted to include the color scheme from the current Color Hues challenge.  After a bunch of playing around with how to layer the die cut sentiment, and whether to use a colored card base, I finally got this put together:

I still don’t love my card, but it’s a lot better than the first one! At least it uses up a little of some very old purple cardstock that I had in my stash. I may try some other ideas with different sentiments and see how that goes. Stay tuned…

In the meantime, I hope you’ll give the sketch a chance and share your card with us at CC&S! You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. time Monday, January 17 to link your card at the challenge site. Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies:
Cardstock: Eggplant Envy, Real Red (Stampin’ Up); Pure Luxury Ivory (Gina K. Designs)
Other: Simply Said Hello Die (Avery Elle)
