Well hi there!  It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for a new challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  This time we have some bold, bright colors for you.

After seeing that some of the other CC&S design team members had used a floral theme for their cards, I decided to do something different.  As I looked through my stamp sets, I realized this hot-air balloon would work well with the challenge colors.  I stamped the balloon on some white cardstock, colored it, and fussy cut around it.  The current sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch! also seemed like a good fit for the balloon image, but I ended up having to scoot the balloon over a bit so that the sentiment would fit the way I wanted it.  I embossed a scrap of cardstock with a cloud pattern for the horizontal strip portion of the sketch, and used dimensional adhesive to attach the balloon over it.  The card all came together quite quickly, so it’s eligible for the current AAA Cards challenge, too.


Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you’ll join us over at CAS Colours & Sketches with your own take on these colors!  You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Monday, April 8 to link your card at the challenge website.

Stamps: Vintage Birthday (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Cardstock: Pure Luxury White (Gina K. Designs)
Ink: Onyx Black (VersaFine)
Other: markers (Copic); clouds embossing folder, dimensionals (Stampin’ Up)
