Challenge #86 - Colors


Hello, and welcome to a new month of challenges at CAS Colours and Sketches!  I'm Patricia, and I'll be your challenge hostess this month.  If you're new here, we hope you'll join in the fun and creativity.  If you're a returning participant, we're glad you're back with us again!

Today we are starting off the month with a color challenge:

Deadline: Wednesday, August 13, 2014, 18.00 GMT

The Stampin' Up color names are only for reference.  You are NOT required to use Stampin' Up products to make your cards for our challenges.  Simply use whatever you have in your craft supplies that is closest to these colors - deep red, ivory, and navy blue.  Please keep in mind that you are only permitted to use these colors for your clean and simple card this week, although we'll allow black for your card base or a mat, and black ink for outlines and sentiments.  

I realize that the colors seem a lot like a slightly different take on the traditional patriotic red, white and blue.  But don't let that fool you into thinking you have to make a patriotic card.  Check out what the design team has made with these colors:











Now it's your turn! You have until 6:00 pm GMT/1:00 p.m. EDT Wednesday, August 13, to share your artwork with us. We'd love to see what you create!
