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

When I first decided on using this image of the little girl, I thought of some of my designer papers that look like flowers on a grassy background.  But as I browsed through them, they all seemed too “busy” for a card that’s supposed to be clean and simple in style.  So I ended up going big time simple with plain green cardstock for the hill, set against a plain sky blue background.  I stamped the girl on a scrap of white cardstock and colored her with Copics before very, very carefully fussy cutting her and gluing her into place.  Her outstretched arms look to me like she’s reaching out for a hug, so that’s how I decided on the sentiment I used.

What will you create with this sketch? We would love to see your clean and simple card submitted for our challenge! You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. time Monday, July 18 to link your card at the challenge site. Thanks for stopping by today!
