CAS Morning Meadow Thank You

by Joanne James21. May 2014 16:41

Today's card is a last minute entry for this week's CAS Colours and Sketches colour challenge, which is to use the following colours:

 

I also used the above sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch as my starting point, although I would be the first to admit that my card isn't the most literal of interpretations; the card I've prepared for tomorrow's blog post is much better! Here is my card:

I decided to use the Morning Meadow hostess set for today's card - this set will only be available until the end of June, so if it's on your wishlist get in touch with me to book a party soon, otherwise you'll miss it. I inked the branch with my Basic Grey and Primrose Petals marker pens, then stamped the bird in Midnight Muse and fussy cut him and placed him on a dimensional, with a little rhinestone-centred punched flower for added interest. I allowed the tail of my bird to overhang the edge of the card - I think I'll join my card up to Addicted to CAS too, where the current challenge is 'off the edge'.

A quick post from me today; back tomorrow with another project. until then, happy stampin'!

My computer hiccupped and I'm not sure if my comments went through the first time, so forgive me if this one is repetitive... but I think this card is fantastic, Joanne!  I love how you've used our challenge colors to create this scene.  I'm so glad you shared this with us at CAS - Colours and Sketches! Smile

Hi Patricia - didn't get your comments the first time, so thanks for persevering, especially as you liked my card! I almost didn't make it in time, but am glad I got there before the close - better late than never Smile
