CAS Colour & Sketch Challenges #295 - Sketch

I have popped back again this week to CAS Colour and Sketch Challenges for their  Sketch Challenge no 295.  Their blog is dedicated to creating greetings cards in the Clean and Simple style of crafting, alternating between colour and sketch challenges.

This is the sketch challenge for this week:-

And this is my entry !

I chose two of my favourite colours, Flirty Flamingo and Coastal Cabana.  I haven't used my Detailed Floral Thinlits in quite some time so I gave them a dusting off and ran off two in the two colours.  Then I created myself something of a jigsaw puzzle, in that I retained the Coastal Cabana die-cut, popping out all the intricate pieces.  I also popped the pieces out of the Flirty Flamingo die-cut and then replaced them into the Coastal Cabana die-cut.  It was a little labour intensive but then I do like jigsaw puzzles and it was actually very absorbing.

Once I had completed it, I cut it down to a small rectangle and layered it onto a piece of Whisper White card stock.

Then out came my Varied Vases Bundle.  I did a mix of stamping and punching to create the pretty centre topper.

I have to say I am very happy with how it all came together.  I do hope it meets the challenge criteria.

Hope you like it.  Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Bye for now,

Linda xx
