Challenge #155 - Colours

Hello!  Welcome to a new year of challenges here at CAS Colours & Sketches!  If you are new to us, we are a challenge blog dedicated to the Clean and Simple style of card making, and we alternate each week between color challenges and sketch challenges.  If you have joined in our challenges in the past, we're glad you're here again!

I'm Patricia, and I'm excited to welcome our newest Design Team members:  Beverley, Caro, Karen, and Liz!  Along with Jane, Louise, and Stef, we are eager to continue sharing the fun and creativity of our challenges with you.

It's the first Thursday of the month, which means we have a color challenge for you.  What will you make with these cool wintry colors?

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 eligible for our Weekly Winners voting, you must not use any other colours.

Here is some inspiration from the Design Team.  We've created cards for a wide variety of occasions! 


We are looking forward to continuing our Guest Designer program this year!  Each month, the names of all the Weekly Winners from the previous month are put into a drawing.  One name is selected and that person is invited to be a Guest Design Team member for an upcoming month of challenges.  I'm delighted to announce that our Guest Designer for the month of January, selected from our October Weekly Winners, is Maaike!  She's been a frequent participant in our challenges and we are thrilled to have her join us as our Guest Designer this month.  Here's her take on this week's challenge:

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 Wednesday, January 13, 2016
