Challenge #213 - Colours

Hello everyone!  Welcome to a new month of challenges at CAS Colours & Sketches!  I'm Patricia, and I'm excited to 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!

This week we have a colour challenge for you, and there's a story behind the colors I've chosen.  I enjoy watching college football (American football, not soccer ;) ) and I'm proud to say that my alma mater's team, the James Madison University Dukes, won the national title in their division for the 2016 season.  In honor of them, I've chosen purple and a golden yellow for the school colors, plus grey to represent their bulldog mascot.

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, plus a picture of JMU's Duke Dog mascot, to jump start your creativity:

The Design Team is pleased to introduce Jen W as our Guest Designer this month. Jen's name was chosen from among our Weekly Winners throughout the month of January, and we think you'll enjoy seeing more of her artwork here.  Here is what she's created with this week's colours:

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