CAS(E) This Sketch 159!

Thursday, February 11, 2016

I thought I was all done making Valentines then along came a new challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch  plus a couple of Valentine challenges at CASology and Just Us Girls and this card was born!




I took a little liberty with the sentiment on my card but I think those little hearts are a sentiment all on their own!  I wasn't sure if it was a little weird to make a Valentine with a black base but I thought the criss-cross background would show up better as black on black plus I really liked the contrast of the red and pink hearts on black.  I think it's a little dramatic and kind of cool.

My fellow teamies at CAS(E) This Sketch have really rocked the sketch this week so I hope you have time to check out their cards and join us in the gallery.  We'd love to see you there!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies
Paper:  Basic Black, Real Red, Pretty in Pink (SU)

Not 'kind of' cool...Very cool. This was a brilliant grid/plaid/lattice idea for the background of your card. As was black on black! And yep, those hearts speak for themselves perfectly. I think this would be perfect for that special man, or a CAS junkie! Great card. Bev
