CAS(E) this Sketch - Challenge #1


Tonight I am sharing a card for a new sketch based challenge blog! CAS(E) this sketch is a new challenge blog created by fabulous CAS designer Jackie Rockwell.  Each week a new CAS sketch will be posted hoping to inspire cardmakers to try it out.


I chose buttons in place of the circles and I popped up and tied the hole with twine on the second hold like in the sketch.  A line was scored above and below the buttons to add interest while still keeping it simple.  I am also entering this into Simon Says Use Dies and/or Punches challenge.



All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock:  White, Hibiscus Burst
Stamps: Birthday Basics, Bits& Buttons
Ink:  Aqua Mist, Hibiscus Burst, Enchanted Evening, Simply Chartreuse, Orange Zest
Dies: Buttoned Up #2
other: pink baker's twine (The Twinery)
