CAS You're Fabulous!

Today's CAS challenge on Splitcoast Stampers was to follow a sketch based on this fab card by Diane. What a great layout and I loved the rounded top to the main panel!

My SU! Bubble Queen stamp set hasn't seen ink in a long time so I dug that out for today's card. The card measures just over 5 1/2" square. I stamped the image in Memento black ink on Craftwork Cards Softies CS and coloured with Copic markers. I then went in search of CS and paper that went with the image and settled on Barely Banana, Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery CS and Sweet Pea and Cottage Wall papers.

To get the rounded top of my Banana panel I used my Coluzzle circle template and just cut a semi circle. For the ends of the paper strips I traced a curve using a small Nestie circle die and then trimmed the rounded edge with curved scissors. I wanted to use my small corner rounder punch but it wouldn't co-operate with the width of the strips I'd cut!

Patterned paper: SU! Sweet Pea DSP stack & Cottage Wall DSP pack
