Hello there!  Since January has five Tuesdays, that means it’s time for a double challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches!  This week we’re asking our challenge participants to combine the given colors with the given sketch.  We’ve reached back into the archives for some retired Stampin’ Up colors and a previous CC&S sketch.  Sounds like fun, right?  Be sure to check out what the rest of the CC&S design team has done with it!

I’ll admit I had a difficult time figuring out what to do for this challenge.  I wanted to make a valentine, but unlike some of the other design team members, I had a hard time wrapping my head around that with the challenge colors.  Finally I decided to think ahead on the calendar and start on the next season: Easter.   Even though I don’t really consider Easter to be a card-giving holiday, I know that some people do, so over the years I’ve made some Easter cards for the charities I support.  I substituted a squarish shape for the heart on the sketch, which gave me a little more room to create a little springtime scene using the challenge colors.  Because of the direction the rabbit is facing, I’ve flipped the sketch mirror-image.  I popped up the rabbit with dimensional adhesive for a little more visual interest.
