It’s time for a double challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches!  Since it’s the fifth Thursday this month, we’re asking our challenge participants to create a card using the colors and sketch that our hostess, Jane, has provided.

I decided to turn the sketch 90° on its side.  The larger present stamp is from a Christmas-themed stamp set, but in this color scheme, it works perfectly well for birthday gifts.  The actual stamp also has a smiley face on it (it’s a happy present!), but I wiped the ink off of the smiley before stamping onto the cardstock.  All three gifts were stamped onto a scrap piece of cardstock, colored with markers, cut out, and then attached to the card base.  That gives them a teeny bit of dimension.  I used ribbon for the banner elements of the sketch and added an enamel dot in each of the challenge colors.



Now it’s your turn to show us what you can create with the colors and the sketch! You have until 6:00 p.m. eastern time Wednesday, August 5 to link your work to the challenge post. Be sure to check out the rest of the design team’s creations for more inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by today!

Cardstock: Daffodil Delight (Stampin’ Up); Pure Luxury White (Gina K. Designs)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Other: markers (Copic); ribbon, candy dots (SU)
