Challenge #252 - Seasonal Colours

Hello! Here at CAS Colours & Sketches we're getting ready for the upcoming holiday season by revisiting our challenges from the past 11 months and turning them into seasonal creations.  As usual, we're starting off the month with a colour challenge:


You can view the graphics from all of our colour challenges by clicking on the Past Colour Challenges tab at the top of the page.  The challenges for 2017 start with Challenge #204.

We've used Stampin' Up colour names for reference, but you may use any companies' products for your cards as long as you match our colours as closely as possible. You may also use neutral colours (white, cream, kraft, brown, grey, or black) for card layers, sentiments, and image outlines. However, in order to be considered for our Weekly Winners, you must not use any other colours.

Your seasonal card can be for Christmas, Hanukkah, or any other December holiday.  If you live south of the equator and are enjoying summer, feel welcome to make a card appropriate for that!  

We've noted the challenges that our Design Team members have chosen, and we ask that you do the same in your post when you share your card.

We had an amazing turnout for our recent Design Team call!  We have selected three people to join our team full-time starting in January 2018, and we'll be introducing them this week and next.  Today we have one of our new members playing along with us.  Please help us give a warm welcome to Jeanne, who has used Challenge #211 for this week's challenge:



Since we know this is a busy time for most people, we've decided to have only two challenges this month.  We don't want to short change any of our guest designers from a normal term of four challenges, so we're putting our guest designer program on hold until January.  Next week we'll be turning a sketch challenge from 2017 into a holiday card.  Beginning December 19, we'll take a break and return with new challenges in January 2018.

Our challenge requirements are listed in the Challenge Rules tab. Please read them carefully before linking your card. Happy crafting!


Challenge End Time: 6:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. time/11:00 p.m. London U.K. time Monday, December 11, 2017
