Wow!  It’s the first day of December!  It’s also Tuesday, which means it’s challenge introduction day at CAS Colours & Sketches.  We’re starting off the month with a color challenge that’s a lighter nod to the traditional Christmas colors of red and green, with a dash of metallic silver.

I knew I wanted to use my favorite Christmas tree image, so then I had to figure out a layout for my card.  The current challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch! looked like it would work.  I did stretch the height of the focal panel and background panel a little to accommodate my tree image and the sentiment.  I used a combination of silver brads and pink enamel dots to decorate the tree.  The subtle houndstooth patterned paper was a great match to the challenge pink.  I realize it doesn’t show in the photo, but the card base is linen textured cardstock.  The shiny silver strip made getting a good picture more challenging than I expected, but in the end, I think it all turned out all right.

The CC&S team would love to see what you can create with this week’s colors!  Share your card at the CC&S website by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Monday, December 7.  Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. What gorgeous colours! Your card is elegant and beautiful! I used to own that stamp, but I’m not sure what happened to my old SU stamps during a house renovation:(
