Hello!  Can you believe it’s April already?  Even though we’re still having some chilly nights with near-freezing low temperatures here in Virginia, the afternoons this week have been warmer and more spring-like.  The grass is turning green again and my daffodils are starting to bloom.

Louise is our CC&S challenge hostess for the month of April, and the colors she has chosen for this week’s challenge are certainly appropriate for this time of year.  She’s asking us to create a card with monochromatic shades of green.  I’ve used the CAS(E) this Sketch! layout for my card.  I knew I wanted to make my card suitable for Operation Write Home, so I opted for a cute crocodile image that had a neutral sentiment that isn’t particular to any occasion.  After I colored and fussy cut the crocodile, I nestled him in some die-cut grass.  The “sky” behind him is a scrap of designer paper with a green print.


Be sure to go see what the rest of the CC&S Design Team has made – and check out the new look of our challenge blog!  Then create your own CAS styled card using this week’s color scheme and link it at the CC&S site.  We’d love to see what you can do!

Edited on April 6, 2015:  Thank you to the CAS(E) this Sketch! Design Team for naming my card as an Honorable Mention for their challenge!  This is a first for me, and I’m very honored!
