CAS Colours and Sketches #381

Are any of you having as much trouble keeping track of time as I am.  Some days I honestly don't know what day of the week it is.  Thank goodness for the ability to create and schedule blog posts ahead of time. (Sad, but being sincere here.  LOL!)  So while today is not Tuesday as I write this, it is Tuesday when it goes live.  Ha!  As you know that means we have a new challenge up for you at the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge blog.  This week we have a sketch created by Holly.

I recently created my first slimline card in a horizontal configuration so today (read that as last week...ha!) I decided to try my hand at a vertical one.  This is what transpired...

No stamping on this one.  I used card stock and a dotted patterned paper to create the vertical stripes.  The sentiment was die cut and layered to add some dimension and the leaves were added for some interest.  I finished it off with some glossy Nuvo drop.  Very easy to create.

Now that I've made a slimline card in both orientations I can honestly say I'm not sure I love the dimensions.  We'll see if it grows on me.

The Stamp Market - card stocks and patterned paper
Spellbinders - Warm Wishes die set
Spellbinders - Layered Colorful Blooms die set
Nuvo - Glossy Black drops

I hope to see your cards in our gallery!!!  

Stay safe and healthy my friends!
