Hello!  It’s been a pretty quiet week around here, but today it’s time for a new challenge at CAS – Colours and Sketches.  This week Jacqueline, our challenge hostess, has come up with a color scheme using some deep, rich colors.

I decided to go floral with the colors, using the two shades of purple for flowers and the green for leaves.  Yes, that very dark color is actually purple, although it tends to show up a lot like black.  It’s really hard to tell in the photograph, but the background is textured cardstock.  I stamped the flowers and leaves on smooth cardstock, fussy cut them, and then adhered them to the background.  The sentiment panel is also smooth cardstock, and it’s attached with dimensional adhesive so it sort of “floats” over the flowers.  Opposing rounded corners add a little extra interest to the card.  The layout is from the CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge that ends today, and the inspiration for the sentiment comes from the current AEIHeartU challenge.

Challenge 11

Be sure to check out what the rest of the CC&S Design Team has done with these colors!  Then share your own card with us by linking it to the challenge post by 1:00 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday, July 23.  We’d love to have you join us!  Thanks for stopping by today.
