Hello!  We’re back to another color challenge this week at CAS – Colours and Sketches.  Karen, our hostess, has mixed a neutral color in with some muted jewel tones (if that makes sense).   I think it’s a pretty combo!

I knew I wanted to use my new birdie set that I got for Christmas again, and I picked out this image of the bird sitting in its nest.  I looked to the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge for the layout of the card.  I tossed around a few different ideas for which color to make the card base and which to make the tilted panel, and finally settled on the plum base with an embossed panel.  The colors for the image panel were pretty easy to figure out, but in retrospect, I probably should have stamped the bird again on a scrap piece of cardstock, colored that, and popped it up on top of the panel to help the bird stand out more from the nest.  I’ll have to remember that the next time I use this image.



Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you’ll check out what the rest of the design team members have made, and then share your own creation with us at the CAS – Colours and Sketches site!  You have until 1:00 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday, January 22 to link your card.
