Guest Designer on CAS(E) this Sketch




I'm extremely honoured to be this week's guest designer on CAS(E) this Sketch. There is so much talent on this challenge site that I'd be lying if I didn't admit to feeling a slight intrepidation.

The sketch which inspired my card is...


Yes I made a rod for my own back by using colours which are fantastic in real life but are impossible to capture photographically. But I do love them and well, I made this card using scraps lying around after another project.

I know that creativity is supposed to be relaxing and meditational. And it is. Except when you are asked to be a guest designer. I swear my salt and pepper hair has turned even greyer. Thank goodness it's not falling out (yet)

Many congratulations! And what an elegant yet apparently simple card. I say 'apparently' because the combination of curves and triangles is very inspired. And inspiring :). I think this is my favorite of them all.

Your card is so cool!!! I went all the way back to June of 2014, enjoying your creativity and just laughed so hard, at your post about your go karting experience!! I really love your cards--I struggle with masculine cards and your style is just wonderful! Thanks so much for the inspiration. Sue N (suen, on SplitcoastStampers)
