Challenge #211 - Colours

Hi it's Jane and I'm back again with my second colour pick of the month and some really yummy delicious colours they are too!



I'm thinking they're evocative of the arrival of Spring and some warmer weather and longer days to come. Keeping my fingers crossed anyway!

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 (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.

The Design Team have had fun creating cards to help you get your creativity flowing and we're looking forward to seeing your cards pop up in our gallery. Please remember we love CAS (clean & simple) cards here at CC&S.

Weekly winners - Colours #209

Wow! You certainly embraced our love themed trio of colours last week. Such a bounty of beautiful cards popped up in our gallery that we're feeling the love here at CC&S and have decided to relax our rule about not combining our colour challenges with other colour challenges just this once.

Not that this made choosing winners any easier, but here's our  six top picks - yes we're in the Valentine spirit for the number of winners too!

Challenge #209 - Colours

Hey! And welcome to the first February challenge here at CAS Colours & Sketches. It's Jane here acting as your hostess for this month and I'm kicking off with some sweet and pretty pinks.


Did I have Valentine's Day in mind when I chose this trio? You bet I did! But that doesn't mean you have to make a love themed card, let your imagination and creativity take you to any place you like. All we ask is that you keep you card CAS (clean & simple) and follow our guidelines for colour challenges.

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 (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.

Here is some inspiration from the design team to get your creative juices flowing:








Our February Guest Designer has been participating in our challenges over the last several months, and was chosen from our December Weekly Winners.  We think you'll like her creativity as much as we do!  Please give Marsha Reed a warm welcome!  Here's her fun take on this week's colours:
