CTS100 - Peace


Today is CAS(E) This Sketch's 100th Anniversary! Remember way, way back? I was on the CTS DT from Challenge 8 to 28.

Chrissy has invited all of us who've been on the DT over the years to help celebrate and participate in this very special challenge this week. Pop over for all the details and for loads of inspiration! Here's the sketch:


I chose a neutral colour scheme to create a peaceful feeling. I cut a square of Doodlebug DP and adhered it directly onto my white cardbase. I cut another square and then cut a curve out of one side to create the shape of the sketch. I stamped a Verve sentiment in Smoky Slate and popped the white panel up for some dimension.

I hope you'll get a chance to join in the fun!

Yep, it is so very peaceful, Ardyth ... it's almost as though all those yummy DP snowflakes have come to rest on the deliciously snow white curved panel! Anita :)

A subtle color combo paired with a simple sentiment and softly curved edge = perfection!
