Hello!  It’s time for a new challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  The first challenge of the month is always a color challenge, but during the month of December, we’re doing something a little different.  This week, we’d like for our challenge participants to choose any of our color challenge combinations from 2017 and use it to make a Christmas or holiday card.

I was away for much of September tending to some family business, so I missed out on Challenge #241 when it was introduced.  So I decided to use that color combo for my card this week.  The layout for my card is based on the current CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge.  I added clear craft lacquer to the light bulbs to make them shine and to give them a bit of a 3-D effect.  The focal panel is raised up from the card base with shims of scrap cardstock for a little extra dimension.

I’m also going to join in the holiday challenges at AAA Cards and Uniko.


Which of our approximately 25 color combinations from 2017 will you use?  You can check all of them out on the CAS Colours & Sketches blog using the Past Colour Challenges tab.  Be sure to see what the rest of the design team has made, too!  Then link your card to the challenge site by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Monday, December 11.  We’d love to see what you come up with!  Thanks for stopping by today.
