CAS Colours and Sketches #440


Happy October everyone!  It's Tuesday which means we have a new challenge up for you over at the CAS Colours and Sketches blog.  The uber talented Vicki is our new hostess for the month and she has chosen this trio of fun colors for us to work with this week.  

As luck would have it, I actually own two of these three colors in the Stampin' Up cardstock line.  (A rare occurrence here.)

I chose a bluebird/branch die and used the cardstocks to cut out different portions of the die.  It was very easy to assemble and glue these together.  I used an embossing folder to create the background texture and then added the die cut/embossed frame over top.  The sentiment was stamped in a crisp black pigment ink.  

I invite you to visit our blog and hope you're inspired to use these colors on your next card.  

Cottage Cutz - Bluebird die
MFT - Framed die
Fun Stampers Journey - Corrugated Cardboard embossing folder
Memory Box - Open Sentiments Birthday

Continue to stay safe and healthy my friends.   _____________________________________________________________________________
