Wow!  November is flying by and it’s already time for our second color challenge of the month at CAS Colours & Sketches.

It was hard NOT to think of flowers for this week’s color combination.  I toyed with a slightly different idea but wasn’t sure I could pull it off, so I ended up choosing a floral stamp set I hadn’t used in a while.  The layered parts of the flower made it easy to incorporate all the challenge colors.  To get the two shades of green on the stem, I stamped off the solid image once, and used the full-strength ink for the details.  I couldn’t decide on a sentiment so I opted to just not use one.  The card front still seemed a little plain, so I pulled out some ribbon to embellish the card.  I don’t often use ribbon on my cards, but I think I’ve still kept this one simple enough to qualify it as CAS in style.  Even though the ribbon has a different color name than the ink, I thought the two matched well enough to use them together. Having the panel offset to one corner gives the card a little additional visual interest.

I’m going to go ahead and enter this card into the current challenge at AAA Cards, where they are asking for CAS cards with just one image.

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, November 25.

All supplies for this card are from Stampin’ Up:
Stamps: Lotus Blossom
Cardstock: Blushing Bride, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
Ink: Blushing Bride, Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz
Other: Certainly Celery satin ribbon
