Hello!  It’s time for another color challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches, and we have some yummy colors for you to use this time.

Unfortunately, my creative energy still hasn’t returned from its Christmas break, and I was having a lot of trouble coming up with ideas for using these colors.  Finally I looked around the internet for inspiration and found the current CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge.  I decided to give it a try with the CC&S challenge colors.  I broke out a never-before-used stamp set and managed to make the challenges work together in a one-layer card (which is a pretty unusual thing for me to do!).  I doodled a couple of lines around the edge of the card.  The crayons were stamped onto scraps of cardstock in each of the three challenge colors, fussy cut, and adhered to the card.  I used two of the challenge colors to stamp the sentiment, which seemed to fit better once I turned the sketch on its side.  I have to admit that I don’t love the card, but it’s all right.  I think it’ll be a cute one to donate to Send a Smile 4 Kids.
