CTS #122

Well, the vacation is over and the laundry begins!  My poor washing machine and dryer haven't seen that much sand in a LONG time.  ;)  It is good to be home and I'm happy to be able to post this from my desk instead of the front seat of my van while sitting in a parking lot using someone else's wifi.  Ha ha!  I hope you will enjoy my card for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge and join us for the fun.  Here's my card:

In case you haven't noticed, I'm a sucker for pattern.  I loved this striped paper immediately when I saw it in the paper pack and I knew it would be fun paired with two different patterned banners.  So, I cut them.  One from this cool number paper and the other from some chevron printed vellum.  Perfect!  I layered them under two stars cut using the Seasonal Stars Dies from Lil' Inker Designs.  I trimmed my card front down to 4" across so I could hang a star over the edge and still fit in an envelope.  Lastly, I stamped my sentiment from Party Pachyderms under my banners.

I hope you like my take on the sketch and will join us at CAS(E) this Sketch.  Back to the laundry for me!  UGH!  ;)

Here are the products I used for this card:

  4. Hi Chrissy,

    I love yellow and black - it makes a good contrast!

  5. Love how you placed your banners at an angle, really adds something. Those star dies are on my wanted list! Karen x
