CAS - Colours and Sketches

Well I made the Top 3 of the Around the World Stampin' Up! Challenge - I was really happy especially as it was my first ever entry to a challenge blog. I will work out how to add the badge to my side bar at some point! ( I used to be technically savvy and then I had children and my brain no longer functions the way it used to - baby brain it's called).

Anyway I now have the blog challenge bug and I have made this card to enter the CAS - Colours and Sketches Challenge - Sketch # 51.

Here's the sketch:

And here's my interpretation of it:

I recently bought the Circle Card Thinlits die and had it already when I saw the sketch for the challenge. Fits perfectly I thought!

Circle Card Thinlits die 133480,
A4 Card stock - Whisper White 106549, Soft Sky 131292, Strawberry Slush 131300,
Silver Glimmer paper 124005,
