Hello there!  It’s colors week again at CAS Colours & Sketches.

Over the last few months I was focusing on holiday-specific cards for Send a Smile 4 Kids, but now it’s time for me to work on more non-holiday cards for them.  Today’s card is meant to give a little encouragement but I suppose it could also be used for a birthday card if the sender writes a birthday message inside of it.  Despite my efforts to make it gender neutral, I think it ended up looking a little more boyish than girly.  But that’s OK.  I used a CC&S sketch from a few months ago for the layout.  We actually had a power outage following a massive thunderstorm yesterday evening while I was making this card, so my first go-through coloring it was literally done by fading sunlight just before sunset.  When the electricity came back on a few hours later, I was able to see that I actually hadn’t done too badly with it, so after touching up a few spots I went ahead and assembled the card.

I’m going to enter this into the “For the Kids” challenge at Shopping Our Stash.

If you need further inspiration for the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge, go see what the rest of the design team has made!  Then create your own clean and simple card using this week’s colors, and link it to the challenge blog by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Monday, May 21.  We’d love to see what you can do!
