Greetings!  It’s time for another color challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  I’ve combined the colors with the most recent Freshly Made Sketches layout.  I dug out one of my older Stampin’ Up stamp sets and stamped the floral vine image in a kraft-colored ink.  I colored in the leaves using a Fantastix tool that I’d tapped to the ink pad.  I brushed a little extra of the kraft ink around the image with a loose brush, aiming for a light splattery effect, but unfortunately in the photo it just makes the card look dirty.  Sigh.  I don’t have any Dapper Denim cardstock or ink yet, so I added some ready-made flowers in colors close to the three challenge colors to embellish the image, topping the flowers off with some tiny self-adhesive pearls.  The sentiment banner is raised up from the card base with dimensional adhesive.
