Hello!  This week at CAS Colours & Sketches we have another color challenge for you.  This time we have some great colors from nature, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what our challenge participants do with them.

My card combines the color challenge with several other challenges.  The layout for my card is taken from the CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge that will be closing later this morning.  I don’t have any alien/outer space stamps that fit the theme for the current Shopping Our Stash challenge, but I thought this monster stamp worked well with the colors.  Aliens could be monsters, right?  The monster stamp is an oldie but goodie from a set I bought about five years ago.  The background stamp is even older than that.  I used it here to stamp a background for the monster, forming a gradient with the greens, making this card eligible for the current Retro Rubber challenge.  I used dimensional adhesive to pop up the monster over the background.  The sentiment comes from the same stamp set as the monster image.
