CTS13 - Welcome!


Time for CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #13!



I did exactly what you should not do when looking at a sketch challenge. I got hung up on that little shape in the top right corner. I saw it as a duck's bill and could NOT convince myself otherwise, so here's my little ducky baby card. I used a Stampin' Up duck stamp, but masked his wing, so that I could stamp it as a heart. There is a tiny bit of sparkle on the duck, which I achieved by applying Stickles and then placing my finger on top to remove most of it.

Now it's your turn - I can't wait to see how you interpret this sketch. Don't get hung up on the shapes like I did!

Ha! Ardyth, I can now see the duck in the sketch, and I haven't made a card for this challenge yet! Now I have to FORGET THE DUCK! So clever. :-)

Darling baby card! Like your inspiration, especially the little duck's beak as the side "flag" shape. :)

I love this super sweet card. Funny how you came to this design and although the sketch is hardly recognizable anymore, the resulting card is more than great!
