CAS(E) this Sketch! Challenge submission

I’ve been meaning to enter one of these sketch challenges for a while now but haven’t been able to get around to making something before the challenge deadline was up.  I love the idea of having a loose template for a card and then being able to use whatever materials or designs I want to make it my own.  It’s also a great way to try out other layout ideas that I never would have come up with myself.  So… I finally did make a card during the week of a challenge and am going to submit it.  Here’s the  challenge sketch and site:

I liked how clean and simple it was (which, I found out, is what “CAS” stands for).  It seemed perfect for a sympathy card and I actually had to make one for my church’s Music Director, whose brother died last weekend.  Here’s my card:

I found the photo of the great, old tree in National Geographic and though it had a similar line to the flower in the photo.  I also love the perspective and the person climbing up it… almost like someone climbing into Heaven.  I added a banner with some card stock that has a kind of pearlized color (it doesn’t show up well in the photo) and the faux stitching boarder with a silver Sharpie.  It’s about as “clean and simple” as I get.  I hope she likes it.
