Playing With Paper For CAS-ual Fridays

Good evening,

I can't believe this is my third post of the day, I'm really on a roll, if only I could do this everyday!
My final card of the day is combining two challenges, CAS-ual Fridays whose challenge was three shades of one colour plus brown. I have chosen Pool Party, Marina Mist, Island Indigo and Crumb Cake.

and a sketch from The Paper Players

I have changed the sketch a little, I wanted my shades of blue, to get gradually larger as they went down the card front. I have also used my sentiment as the central focal point of the card to keep it quite simple.

I stamped the flower image onto each layer of coloured CS in the same ink to give a tone-on-tone pattern, then decided to use it as an accent as well which I just couldn't resist glittering!

I know I probably shouldn't say be I'm really pleased with how it turned out. When I started I didn't think it was going to work, but somehow it all came together in the end, yay!

Well that's all from me today, hope you will come by and see me again soon. xx

Kelly, what a fabulous take on the sketch. I love the gradation of color and the scalloped edges. Allowing the focus to be on the sentiment was a fabulous idea. So glad you joined The Paper Players this week
