CAS(E) this Sketch! Guest Designer

* This is my second post for the day, don't forget to check out the BONUS Design Team Blog Hop winner post earlier to see if you were the lucky winner!*


I was super excited to win CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge a few weeks ago HERE with THIS card and was surprised but beyond thrilled to be contacted by the lovely Chrissy to be guest designer for this weeks challenge. Of course I jumped at the chance and said yes.

This weeks sketch is fun and can be interpreted SO many different ways...

but I went with a literal interpretation making a modern masculine birthday card...

I used the Dynamic Duo challenge colours again, even though it's too late to enter. I think the colours a modern and fresh, not necessarily those you would reach for when making a masculine themed card.

I used one of the building stamps from Background Builders: Round In Circles, bending it into a wave shape on my block before stamping in the trio of colours. I then stamped the sentiment from A Gift For You before adding some SU! Candy Dots to the large dots along the waves on the yellow & aqua lines for a touch of added interest.

Be sure to stop on by HERE for all the challenge details plus lots more inspiration from the CAS(E) this Sketch! DT.

That's all from me today, I will be back on Saturday with a scheduled post for you. I'm taking a short break away in London to celebrate my husbands birthday and also our last little getaway before the little beans arrive! I will be back here on the blog on Sunday with something new to share with you. Until then, thank you for stopping by today :)

Card Stock: SU! Smokey Slate, White (Boyes)
