Challenge #259 - Sketch

Hello there crafting friends!  It's Patricia again, with the first sketch challenge for this month.

I mentioned last week that I'd used one of my older cards to inspire my choices for last week's color challenge.  This week, I've turned one of my cards from 2011 into our sketch challenge: 


Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch when creating your card.  The sketch is designed for an A2 sized card (5.5" x 4.25"), but you can stretch it to a portrait-oriented rectangle if you'd like.  Of, if you prefer to create square cards, you may manipulate it into a square.  So long as we can easily see the sketch elements shown here, it's all good!

Our design team has created the following cards to inspire you.  Some of us have tweaked the sketch a bit, but the main idea of the sketch is obvious.

Patricia

Beverley

Cathy
Guest Designer - Charlotte/Lady Joyful


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, February 19, 2018

Challenge #258 - Colours

Hello!  Welcome to another month of challenges here at CAS Colours & Sketches.

It's Patricia here, starting off the month of February challenges with a color combination for your consideration.  Of course, you can make your card any theme you'd like, but maybe these colors will work for any last-minute Valentines you need to make.  They were inspired by a Valentine I made a long time ago.


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 neutral colours for card layers, sentiments, and image outlines. However, in order to be considered for our weekly winners, you must not use any other colours.

Our design team has created the following cards to inspire you:

Cathy

Our Guest Designer this month was selected from among our Weekly Winners from the months of November and December 2017.  She has been a frequent participant in our challenges throughout the year, and we think you'll enjoy seeing her artwork here, too.  Please join us in welcoming Charlotte E., who blogs as Lady Joyful!  Here is what she's created with this week's colours:
