CAS-Colour and Sketches #27

Happy Friday Eve,

Today I have my card for our 'double' challenge at CAS-Colour and Skecthes. That means we have both a colour combo and a sketch for you. The challenge is to combine both of these to create a CAS card.
Here are the colours and the sketch:


I thought long and hard about this and to be honest thought I wouldn't come up with an idea but then a new set of stamps arrived and an idea just popped into my head:

This sentiment is from the Fresh Squeezed Stamps and I just inked it up in black and red. I added the 2 bigger stars, inked off in the green and grey colours. To finish my card I used a star embossing folder to give me the line at the bottom and to balance the whole card I added two simple score lines at the top.
I am actually really happy with how this turned out especially after the hours of not getting an idea!

I am sending this to a friend I went to school with but I rarely see. She is one of those friend that you know is, and, will be there always.

Now pop over to our bog here and check OUT the cards ouR DT have made to inspire you to play along.

I will also enter this into the 'focus on the sentiment challenge' at Lexi's Creations and the CAS challenge at Stamps and Fun=Creativity and the 'Use Sentiments' challenge at Crazy Challenge
