Hello!  I’m excited to be the challenge hostess at CAS Colours and Sketches during the month of February!  I hope you’ll join in the fun and creativity of our color and sketch challenges.

The first Thursday of the month means it’s color challenge time, and I’ve picked out a trio of soft colors.  I thought they would look pretty for either Valentines or springtime cards.  I usually don’t think of Easter as a card-giving holiday, but I do like to make a few Easter cards for Operation Write Home, so that’s what I’ve done for today’s card.  This week’s sketch from Freshly Made Sketches provided the layout for my card, using the bunny in place of the large heart-shaped element of the sketch.  I’ve flipped the sketch mirror-image so my little bunny wouldn’t be looking off the edge of the card.  The bunny and butterfly are both fussy cut and adhered to the card front.  I raised the bunny a bit with a few scrap cardstock shims, and one side of the butterfly is attached with dimensional adhesive, to give the card a little more visual interest.


Be sure to check out what the rest of the CC&S Design Team has made!  Then create your own clean and simple styled card with these colors and link it to the CC&S site by 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, February 11.  We’d love to see what you make!
