Hello There ! Happy Sunday!
It’s time for the next challenge and my first Sketch challenge at AAACards.
Here’s the sketch for you to play with
And here’s my card based on the Sketch
The fun thing about a sketch challenge is that, half the work is already done. One already has a blueprint for a CAS Design. And for this card the other half of the work was also already done. I had colored this cute frogs, flowers, leaves and grass from the stamp set “Frog” by Sunny Studios during the daily marker 30 day coloring challenge.
So following the sketch I die cut a circular window on my white card front. I then took a separate card stock and created an evening sky by ink blending with distress inks. I also created the water for the pond with distress ink using the waves stencil by Simon Says Stamp before I heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set on the inked card stock. I adhered the inked card stock with foam tape like shown in the image. Finally i adhered all the colored images, few with glue and a few with foam squares to create a cute scene.
I made this card for two of my friends who are twins and are totally awesome.
I hope my cards inspires you to play along AAA Cards challenge and gets you crafting to make some handmade happiness for your loved ones. Just remember to KEEP IT CAS (Clean And Simple).

I think we are going to get some amazing CAS Cards for this challenge and i am so looking forward to your take.
I am playing along with a couple of challenges with this card:
I used the copic markers for coloring the images and distress inks for the background. I also used a stencil with the distress inks for creating the water in the background. The coloring is the highlight of the card.
Keeping the scene inside the window leaves a lot of empty white space keeping the card Clean and Simple which is the optional twist
The frogs in the card are perfect for the animal theme of the challenge as they are the focal point of the card. The sentiment also refers to the animals.
The images of the frogs and the word toad in the sentiment is the focal point of the card. As the critters are the center of attention in the card, this is perfect for the theme of critters.
Anything goes is always a fun theme with many possibilities. I always love playing along with Paru’s challenge.
The Clean And Simple look goes well with the theme of the month
Please do let me know what you think about this card. I love and appreciate your comments and thoroughly enjoy reading those.
All the very best. Happy Crafting !! Have fun!!
