Hello there!  It’s time for another month of challenges at CAS Colours & Sketches!  We have some bold, bright colors for our challenge this week.  One of them has been a part of Stampin’ Up’s color lineup for a few years, but the other two are In Colors that were introduced last month.  As always with our color challenges, if you don’t have the exact colors shown in our challenge graphic, you may use whatever you own by any company so long as you match the colors as closely as possible.

It’s been a while since I’ve made a card specifically for Send a Smile 4 Kids, so I decided to focus on that organization when I was working on my card for this challenge.  The bright chartreuse had me a little stumped at first because to me it seems too yellow to work well as foliage.  Since it’s Independence Day here in the U.S. I kept feeling like I should do something with stars and/or stripes, even though the colors are far from our patriotic red, white and blue.  :)  I ended up going graphic with a design I found on Ardyth’s blog.  I decided to embrace that bold greenish yellow by using it for the card base and to stamp the sentiment.
