  Hi there Crafty Friends. It's time for a new challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches and it's a sketch challenge this week. Vicky has designed a unique and fun sketch for us. 

I had a sudden urge to use patterned paper, but made sure to use a very subtle pattern so the card would still be CAS.

I don't buy much patterned paper, the exception being at Kaisercraft sales when I can get 6" x 6" 
pads for 1/2 price. I inked the edges of the paper with Antique Linen, to get a vintage feel.  Then I matted it on my fave textured card-stock and used it for the sentiment as well.
Oh dear, no stamping or colouring on my card - it feels like I'm cheating😉.

I would love for you to visit our blog to see what the rest of the team have created and will feel inspired to join us in the challenge.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! I love to read your comments:)


  1. I don't use much patterned paper...like you said it does feel like cheating. That said, what a beautiful card this is..I love the look...Maybe I should take a look at those paper pads I have.

  2. What a pretty vintage card Jenny and I know exactly what you mean about no stamping or colouring x. Such a beauty x.

  3. A perfect sketch to showcase some pretty paper and I love the soft blue and vintage feel of your card this week.

  4. Love these papers that are perfect with this sketch!

  5. I know that feeling of 'cheating', but your result is wonderful Jenny - love it, and how you have trimmed out the extra flower to add that extra 'something' to your card
    Stay safe
