Hello there!  I hope February has gotten off to a good start for you.  A new month means a new hostess for our challenges at CAS Colours & SketchesStef has some fun ideas planned for us, so I hope you’ll consider playing along with us and showing us your CAS skills.

The first Thursday of the month means its color challenge time.  I have to confess that I struggled for a while with this one.  The pinks didn’t bother me, but the orange combined with them threw me for a bit of a loop.  After a few unsuccessful attempts playing with the inks in these colors, I decided to keep it simpler and just go with good old fashioned stamping.  I’m going to need to make several birthday cards this month, so that’s how I chose the theme of my card.  I stamped the presents in each of the challenge colors.  Actually, it’s just one present stamp, but I “shortened” it by not inking it all the way to the bottom for the orange and the darker pink present.  The sentiment is stamped with the darker pink ink, the additional banner is made from a scrap of orange cardstock, and the card base is the lighter pink color.  The layout for my card is from the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge, but I’ve squashed it into a landscape-oriented rectangle.


CC&S color159-001All in all, I think the card came together all right.  It’s not my most favorite card I’ve ever made, but it’s certainly not the worst, either.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the CAS Colours & Sketches design team did with these colors.   Then show us what you can make with them!  You can link your creation to the challenge blog until 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday, February 10.  Thanks for stopping by today!
