CASE-ing the Catty - Sketch Challenge Week 2
February 09, 2020
Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty for this week.

This week 2, CASE-ing the layout of the Koala card in the photo above.
Here is the card converted into a sketch so you can easily see the key elements, which are 3 panels and a sentiment. There is lots of scope to get creative. This is also a great layout to use your designer paper in the background, with your decorated panels over the top.
This week, I've kept my card really simple, using beautiful designer paper to do the heavy lifting. I have a Thick Whisper White card base and a layer of the Lovely Lipstick painted canvas design from the Sale-a-bration Lily Impressions Designer Paper. I have two stitched rectangles using a lovely floral design from the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper. I cut a 4cm strip and adhered it to some Whisper White before die cutting to give it some body. In the centre is a stitched rectangle cut from Pear Pizzazz card stock. It isn't one of the designated colours, but it works well with the lighter tone of Old Olive.
I added a Vellum oval across the centre before popping up my stitched oval with the greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. I've stamped some of the flowers from the Dressed to Impress stamp set to embellish the oval, colouring them with Stampin' Blends. The foliage is die cut from Old Olive card stock using dies from the Birthday Dies set, which is one of the new Sale-a-bration Coordination options now available. I feel that it needs a bit of bling, but couldn't make it work!
