Well hello there!  It’s the first Tuesday of the month, which means we have a new hostess of the month over at CAS Colours & SketchesYoonYoung has planned some fun things for us this time, and she’s starting us off with a really nice pastel color challenge.

When I was trying to decide what to make for this challenge, the idea of using kraft with the challenge colors stuck in my head.  But none of my image stamps really seemed “right” to use with that combination.  I finally decided to use the colors for a sentiment and make that the focal point of the card.  I die cut the word “hello” from a panel slightly smaller than a card front.  I adhered scraps of cardstock in the challenge colors to the card base so that they would show through the die cut word.  I originally planned to use dimensional adhesive to pop up the front panel from the card base, but quickly realized that would be a pain to use with the insides of the “e” and the “o”, so I attached the panel directly to the card base and then glued the insides of the letters in place.  I opted not to include the inner loops of the “h” and the “l”s – that was too fiddly even for me, LOL!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you’ll share your own card with the CC&S challenge colors by linking it to the CC&S site by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Monday, June 10.
