Wow!  It’s already the third Tuesday in November, and that means it’s color challenge time again at CAS Colours & Sketches.

I decided to combine the colors with the sketch from the current AAA Cards challenge and the theme from this week’s challenge at The Paper Players.  I used a tree die for the vertical and horizontal elements of the sketch, and I hope with the wash of color for the sky behind it, that I’m not taking too many liberties with the sketch idea.  The little birdie fills in for the “any shape” element.  I stamped the birdie onto a scrap of cardstock, colored him in the grey and darker purple of the challenge colors, and fussy cut him (even around his tiny little legs!) so I could glue him in place on his perch.  Then I used my stamping platform to help me add the sentiment precisely in place.  I opted to use the grey from the challenge color trio for the card base because it’s neutral and it matched my coloring the best.


What will the CC&S colors inspire you to create?  We’d love to see your clean and simple card in our challenge gallery!  You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. time Monday, November 23 to link your card to the challenge post.  Thanks for stopping by today!
