Uniko sponsors CAS Colours and Sketches

Hello there craft buddies ... hope you are well.
We've had a very wet and windy day here in Cumbria
with the threat of flooding in the town but thankfully it's not
been as bad as the news and weather reports initially thought.

So what better way to keep warm and dry but tucked up in my 
craft room and I've a card to share for the latest challenge at

CAS Colours and Sketches 
where they are celebrating not only a 3rd birthday but also 150 challenges! 
Well done and Congratulations!

The Uniko DT were asked if we would like to make a card 
for the challenge but unfortunately I was up to my eyeballs with
all sorts of things so didn't get around to it for Wednesday so here's
my entry to the challenge using the following sets from Uniko: 

Background Builders: Christmas, Essentially Christmas and Classic Numbers.
 I've teamed these with a stitched circle die from Simon Says Stamp to
create the aperture and Count it number dies from Avery Elle.
To finish a couple of doodlebug sprinkles as my holly berries.

Here's the sketch if you fancy playing along and the challenge closes
at 11pm GMT on Wednesday, 18th November.

Thanks as always for calling by and have a great week.

  5. Hi Sarah

    A great take on the sketch .. .. love it!!

    Many thanks for your lovely comment on my blog over the weekend .. .. my news seems so un-important in light of all the awful happenings that are dominating the news. All very scary!

    Love Jules xx

  6. Super card Sarah, loving your Uniko combo. Thanks for playing at CC&S.

  7. The subtle snowflake stripes help give your card an ultra CAS vibe. The traditional red, green, and white color scheme is always a winner for Christmas cards. Super job all around! Thanks so much for joining in our birthday celebration at CC&S! :)

  8. This is so fun & I love the combination of Uniko stamps you have used along with the other products. Hmm think I need some doodlebug sprinkles they look so smooth & colourful! Thanks for playing along at CC&S too. Hugs Bev x
