Well hello there!  We’re starting a new month of challenges at CAS Colours & Sketches today, and with it, the design team is doing something a little bit different.  Instead of having one team member being the hostess for the entire month, we have five team members each hosting one challenge this month, and the other four members will each host a challenge in July.

As always, the challenge for the first week of the month is a color challenge.  I’ll admit it took me a little while to settle on what kind of design to use with these week’s colors.  In the end I figured one can pretty much never go wrong with florals.  The green in the challenge combo worked perfectly for the stems and leaves, and the light aqua made some pretty blossoms.  The kraft cardstock is a nice neutral to ground the elements together.  In retrospect I probably should have had the stems extend off the base of the card so they’re not “floating” so much, but it’s too late now – the card is in the mail to its recipient already!

This card works into the top row of the current Tic-Tac-Toe challenge at The Paper Players.  OK, maybe it’s not THE most girly card, but it’s definitely more feminine than masculine!  I’m also going to use this card to join in the celebration at AAA Cards.  Happy 6th birthday to their challenge!



Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you’ll make a card with these challenge colors and share it with us at CC&S.  You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. time Monday, June 8 to link your card at the challenge site.

Stamps: Painted Petals (Stampin’ Up); Birthday Greetings (Gina K. Designs)
Cardstock: Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla (SU)
Ink: Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake (SU)
