Greetings!  It’s time for another color challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.

I hadn’t used this floral image for a while, and I thought it would work well with the challenge colors.  I stamped off the different layers of the bloom to get the various shades of purple.  The sentiment is stamped with the full strength color.  For the subtle background shown in the sketch, I decided to splatter some yellow ink.  Putting the panel on a yellow card base helps to highlight that color.  I’ve combined the color challenge with the most recent layout from CAS(E) this Sketch!  However, because of the orientation of the flower, it looked better to use the mirror image of the sketch.
