Hello!  It’s time for a new month of challenges at CAS Colours & Sketches, and for November, I get to be your challenge hostess!  I hope you’ll enjoy the cards the design team and I make this month, and I hope you’ll join in and make some cards, too.

A new month always gets started off with a color challenge.   I’ve chosen a trio of colors that haven’t been used much on our blog.  I felt they worked in nicely with the autumn season.  Because of that, I was compelled to use tree images on my card.  I’ve pulled out one of my “oldie but goodie” sets that was retired several years ago.  Rather than layering colored cardstock to mat the image panel, I’ve made a mat out of the three challenge colors – which was a great way to use some scraps of cardstock!  The ribbon was a last minute addition.  The card looked too plain without it, but now it almost seems like the ribbon was a bit too much.  What do you think?

Our friends at the Less is More challenge blog are celebrating their 300th challenge this week!  What an amazing milestone for them!  I’m helping them celebrate by playing along in their challenge this week.  I’m also joining in the challenge for masculine cards at AAA Cards.

Go check out the other design team members’ cards at the CAS Colours & Sketches blog.  They’ve done an amazing job this week!  Then show us what you’re inspired to create using these colors.  If you don’t have the exact Stampin’ Up colors, that’s all right; simply use whatever you have that matches them closely. You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday, November 9 to link your card at the challenge post.  Happy crafting!

All supplies except the ivory cardstock are from Stampin’ Up.
Stamps: Trendy Trees, Birthday Whimsy
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie, Always Artichoke; Pure Luxury Ivory (Gina K. Designs)
Ink: Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie, Always Artichoke
Other: Always Artichoke grosgrain ribbon
