ATCAS #52 - Sketch and Happy 2nd Birthday

 Hi there blog friends,
One of my all-time favorite card challenges is Addicted to CAS, and this week happens to be their 2nd Birthday! So, before I share my card, I would like to say Happy, Happy Birthday to Kylie and her amazing team!




So, as you can see I went fairly literal in my interpretation of the sketch. Instead of paper or cardstock for the panel, I used my SSS Diagonal Stripe stencil and texture paste. I've had the PTI Circle Scribbles die for a while, so I used it for the first time on this card, and cut it in vellum. The penguin is from Mama Elephant and the sentiment is from SSS Big Holiday Wishes.

That's it for me today...Thanks so much for stopping by ~
