CAS Colours & Sketches #156


I'm back this afternoon with my card & post for CAS Colours & Sketches, this week is sketch week & this super CAS sketch had me stumped for a while as can you believe it, I dot actually own anything that punches or die cuts an oval?!

I then had an 'Ah Ha' moment, I remembered getting some speech bubble wood veneers and I have used that on my card...

You can see this weeks sketch & challenge HERE and below...

Using the wood veneer speech bubble kinda determined my colour choice for my card, kraft, red and white, a classic colour combination. 

The sentiment I have chosen is from All Occasion Sentiments #6, the flower is Flower Power #2 and the leaves are from Flower Power #6. After stamping and fussy cutting my flower and leaves, which incidentally hides the speech bubble tail I was able to stamp the sentiment. After adhering it all to my card, I added a trio of white enamel dots from SU! to finish it all off. 

Ok, that's all from me just now, but be sure to head on over to the CAS Colours & Sketches blog HERE to see the Design Team's fabulous samples & I hope to see you in the gallery! 

Thanks for stopping by today!

  6. Ingenius use of that wooden speech bubble Bev. Fabulous card!

  7. Wonderful card, Bev! I love the wood layer - what great texture for a cas card!

  8. What a clever way to make use of your supplies, using the speech bubble for the oval! The flower hides the tail perfectly. It's a fabby card!

  9. Oh no! Can't believe I missed out commenting on last week's cards! So sorry. That was out of the box thinking, to make the oval from a wood cutout. Keeps it CAS, adds texture and dimension at the same time. Nice job!
