Hello!  Holy cow, this week has gone by quickly!  It’s Thursday again, which means it’s time for a new challenge at CAS – Colours and Sketches.

Since it’s the third Thursday of the month, we have a color challenge this time.  Kylie has chosen the colors Real Red, Bashful Blue, and Crumb Cake.  After a couple of false starts, I finally settled down on a Christmas theme, even though this isn’t a typical color combination for the holidays.  I guess I’m still pretty firmly entrenched in Christmas mode for Operation Write Home.  I decided to give the layout from Seize the Sketch another try.  I had to use the mirror image of the sketch so the little teddy bear wouldn’t seem to be looking off the edge of the card.   I stamped the bear and his bow on scraps of cardstock, fussy cut them, and then glued the bow onto the bear.  I wanted to give him just a little bit of “lift” from the card, so he’s raised up from the card front with a cardstock shim.  Even though this isn’t one of my favorite cards ever, I do like it a lot better than last week’s attempt at this sketch.

I’m also entering this card into this week’s ‘ABC’ Challenge.  Their theme this week is “SIP – Stamps, Ink, Paper”.

Now it’s your turn to go see what the rest of the design team has created, and show us what you can do with these colors.  Although Stampin’ Up color names are listed for reference, you may use any other company’s products that are similar in color.  Share your work via the linky tool on the CAS – Colours and Sketches blog by noon eastern time on August 21.  Thanks for stopping by today!
