CAS Colour & Sketch Challenges #294 - Colours

This is something very new to me !  Taking part in a colour challenge.   The Design Team over at the CAS Colour & Sketch Challenges Blog have a Colour Challenge this week, and I have decided to have a go.   The brief was to use the three colours indicated below to create a clean and simple card.  I can say I have never put these three colours together .... ever !   So it was indeed a challenge, and one that I have thoroughly enjoyed.




So my little recipe was:-
  1. Soft Suede cardstock base, and layers of Blushing Bride and Soft Suede.
  2. Friendly Expressions stamp set for the sentiment (heat embossed)
  3. Leaves from Painted Harvest (heat embossed and punched with the Leaf Punch)
  4. Flowers in Blushing Bride & Berry Burst card stock (punched with the Bunny Builder Punch) with pearly accents.
  5. Rustic Linen Thread
I have to say that having been very doubtful about the colours, I do really like how my design came together.  Hope you like it too.


Thanks for looking and bye for now.
