Wishing You Joy

Here's my card for this week's CAS(e) this Sketch challenge.  I used the sketch in it's vertical orientation along with a new stamp set from Mama Elephant.  I don't have many (maybe even any!) people silhouette images in my stamp collection, so when I saw the So Breezy set, I decided to pick it up.

I stamped the girl and kite images on a light blue panel, using a gray ink for a softer look.  The "wishing you joy" sentiment is stamped along the left edge of the panel.  I cut a piece of blue patterned paper with a feminine floral design for the panel behind the image.  The two panels are arranged on a turquoise card base. 

I found a scrap of turquoise stitched grosgrain ribbon in my ribbon pile and folded it to make a tab to slip under the image panel to help set it apart from the patterned paper without adding a mat.  The angular mat isn't something I wouldn't have tried on my own, but I really like how it looks!

Materials Used:
So Breezy stamp set (Mama Elephant); Memento Gray Flannel ink (Tsukineko); Soft Sky cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Hawaiian Shores cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Country Drive-Daisy Field designer paper (Echo Park); turquoise stitched grosgrain ribbon (Michaels)


  1. Great colour combination and a lovely spring image! Thanks so much for playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

  2. Love the dominance of blue in this card and that silhouette image is just lovely :) Thanks for playing this week at CAS(E) this Sketch!
