Hello again!  I’m back to crafting again after helping take care of some family matters, and I’m getting back into the groove with a color challenge for CAS Colours & Sketches.

It was hard to see these colors and not think of doing something floral.  LOL  I got the lighter shades of the deep purple and the lagoon green by stamping off onto a scrap piece of paper before stamping onto the cardstock.  Then I had to figure out how to incorporate the silver.  I’ve done that by spritzing the main panel of the card with pewter shimmer mist and adding silvery brads to two of the corners.  The layout for this card is very roughly based on last week’s sketch at CC&S.


CC&S color174-001Be sure to check out what the rest of the CC&S design team and our May guest designer have made with these colors!  Then create a card of your own and link it to our challenge site by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday, May 25.  We’d love to have you join in the fun and creativity!

Supplies are from Stampin’ Up unless otherwise noted.
Stamps: Lotus Blossom
Cardstock: Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White
Ink: Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss
Other: diamond brads; pewter Perfect Pearls Mist (Ranger)
