Hello!  It’s the third Thursday of the month, which means it’s time for a new color challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  This week we have a monochromatic scheme with a metallic highlight.  That sounds interesting, doesn’t it?

I decided to go the floral route with the two purples in the challenge colors.  I considered stamping the flowers, but in the end I chose to punch them from cardstock and use silver brads for the centers to get in more of the metallic color.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with silver ink and silver embossing powder, and then arranged the punched flowers around it.  The layout for the card comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

  1. Love those simple punched flowers, reminds me of a tea set we had when I was little. I’ve taken note of the silver embossing powder you’ve used and think I’ll be adding it to my stash.

  2. The punched flowers are fun – love that you used the brads to add to the silver. I really like the silver foil border too. Liz x

  3. Such a wonderfully clean and fresh card. I love the two-toned flowers accenting the sentiment, and the pops of silver are the perfect accent. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  4. This is so pretty with the silver mini brads and the silver foil paper. Really great card! Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  5. Love the scallops and the brad flower centers! Wonderful card!

  6. I love the subtle silver scalloped border and the hints of it in the flowers. So CAS. I really like the interpretation of the sketch. Caro x

  7. So sorry for commenting so late Patricia. I like your use of the colours, the scalloped silver border is a great take on the sketch too
