CAS(E) this Sketch 4 and The Play Date Cafe 156

Friday, November 2, 2012

I've been at sixes and sevens this week and I'm not sure why.  The hurricane on Monday surely threw me for a loop but what I experienced in regards to that storm pales in regard to what others are suffering so I don't think that's it.  I really needed some stamping therapy and after several false starts this week I managed to put a card together last night.  My inspiration comes from the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch and the colors at The Play Date Cafe.



I'm pretty sure I messed up one of the colors.  One of the little squares at the bottom looked an awful lot like Soft Suede so I used that color as well as More Mustard, Very Vanilla and Always Artichoke.  But then I went back and read the challenge interpretation of my "soft suede" as something they call "cinnamon."  I probably should have used something like Cajun Craze or Dusty Durango but Soft Suede is a lovely color all on it's own and has certainly got some cinnamon roots so I'm sticking to it!

It feels good to get back in my stamp room and stretch my creative fingers, as it were.  Hopefully I'll be inspired to return there tonight!  In the meantime thanks for stopping by!

So pleased you're okay after the storm Jen, we've been so shocked by news coverage of the devastation it's left. Your card is a beauty and a great take on that fab sketch.
