Hello!   July has five Tuesdays, and that means it’s time for a double challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches!  This week we’re asking our challenge participants to combine the given colors with the given sketch.

The colors made me think of flowers and Christmas, and in my opinion the best way to combine those two thoughts is with a poinsettia.  I’ve used a digital image and colored it with Copic markers before carefully cutting it out.  I decided to make the green colors the focus of the card, using the lighter green for the focal panel and the darker green to ink the swirls and the sentiment.  I briefly considered using a rose pink card base but the card looked more clean and simple in style with an ivory base to match the ivory sentiment panel.  I squashed the shape of the card into a landscape oriented rectangle so I’d have more room for the sentiment, and flipped the sketch mirror-image.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the CC&S Design Team has made.  Then get your craft on and link your own card to our challenge post!  You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Monday, August 5 to share your card with us.  We’d love to see what you can do with our double challenge!
