Hello!  It’s time for a new color challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  Our hostess for the month of June is Beverley, and she’s chosen a palette of soft colors.

At first, the colors made me think of florals, but then the rebel in me wanted to do something that didn’t seem quite so obvious.  I decided to combine this challenge with last week’s CC&S sketch challenge, which I missed out on because I was out of town.  My heart shaped dies were just the right size to work in place of the circular elements on the sketch, once I turned the sketch into a landscape-oriented rectangle.  I slightly folded the hearts in the challenge colors and glued down the crease, to give them a little dimension.  To accentuate the shadows, I added hearts in kraft cardstock behind them.  The sentiment is because I needed a birthday card for someone who’s given my family and me lots and lots of love.  In case she sees this post, I don’t want to say exactly who it is, because it isn’t quite her birthday yet!
