"We do not remember days, we remember moments." Cesare Pavese

see with our hearts...

Hello friends... gloomy day here in Western Washington.  Found a little time to make a card for a couple of challenges:  CAS(E) this Sketch and CAS - Colours & Sketches.    The challenge this week at CAS - Colours & Sketches is a color challenge:  Pool Party, Primrose Petals & Rich Razzleberry.

 

When I saw the sketch my first thought was to do a very straight forward take on the sketch... pretty much what I always think, lol.  But I decided to think outside the box and I came up with this very loose interpretation of the sketch.  The stamps are from the Stampin Up! set Every Moment.  The main image was stamped using Pool Party and then I added the butterfly in Primrose Petals and the sentiment using Rich Razzleberry.   As I stated above, it is a gloomy day and that means my less than stellar photography skills are decreased even more than usual... making it hard to capture the Rich Razzleberry color.   I do really like how the card turned out, though. 

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Stampin Up!; Inks:  Stampin Up!
