CAS(E) This Sketch 193!

Thursday, October 6, 2016

It's time for a new challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch!  Sometimes before I sit down to actually make a card for a particular challenge an idea comes to me that I can't get out of my head.  For this card it was burlap.  When that happens I have no choice but to proceed with my idea!



I do love some good texture on a card and what's better than a little burlap?  I'll admit it is a little tricky to stick down but the extra glue is worth it.  I love how it's a bit rustic and then with a few elegant die cuts I've got a cool juxtaposition.

My colors come from the Cupcake Inspiration challenge.  They were looking for a color they call "chestnut" and, of course, I don't really have any colors in my stash that could accurately be called "chestnut."  This is a shame since it's a very nice color.  I did manage to find some card stock that seemed close but I have no idea what it is since I got it as a freebie at a local scrapbooking store.


I've been making an abundance of thank you cards lately because I always need a lot of those at the end of the year, but I think I need to go back to Christmas cards so stay tuned for that!  In the meantime don't forget to check out our challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch.  I hope you can join us in the gallery!

Thanks for stopping!'

Jen, I love your card. That pop of aqua is great. I was inspired by your use of burlap, I had to case it for my entry at CAS(E) This Sketch.
