Colour Challenge #183

It's lovely to be hosting this week's challenge as we each take a turn during the months of July and August. We are in the middle of a mini heatwave here in the UK with many complaining that it's too hot (there's no pleasing some people)! Anyway, for my colour choices this week I looked back through our challenges and decided to show some love to three colours that haven't featured in our choices of late. 


We've used Stampin' Up colour names for reference; however, you may use any companies' products for your cards as long as you match our colours as closely as possible. You may also use white, ivory, kraft, or black for your card base and layers, for image outlines, or for sentiments. However, in order to be considered for our weekly winners, you must not use any other colours. 

I hope you enjoy working with this colour trio this week. See below for some fab inspiration from the design team to give you some ideas and then share your creation with us (don't be shy)!

Sketch Challenge #182

Hi there, it's Jane hosting this week's sketch challenge here at CAS Colours & Sketches. I'm hoping you'll enjoy using my very simple sketch.


Please feel free to flip or rotate the sketch when creating your card, but we do like to see evidence of the sketch in your interpretation.

As always the Design Team have been busy making cards to help kickstart your crafting. Follow the links to their individual blogs to find out more about how they put their cards together.
