Challenge #298 - Sketch

Hello!  It's time for our first sketch challenge of the month, brought to you by Patricia.  Check it out:


A while ago I was browsing online for ideas and found this card, which totally inspired today's sketch.  I always like the look of scallops even though I don't use them often on my cards, so I thought this would make a good challenge!  The sketch is designed for an A2 sized card (4.25" x 5.5"), but you can stretch it to a landscape-oriented rectangle if you'd like.  Of, if you prefer to create square cards, you may manipulate it into a square.  You could also rotate the sketch on its side or move the placement of the sentiment.  The important thing is that you keep the idea of a scalloped line stretching across the card. 

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

Challenge #297 - Colours

Welcome to the start of a new month of challenges at CAS Colours & Sketches!  If you're new here, we hope you'll join in the fun and creativity.  If you're returning to our challenge blog, we're glad you're back. 

Patricia is our hostess for the month of November.  It's autumn here in North America, so we're kicking things off with a challenge inspired by colours you might find in nature this season - blue sky, and purplish-red and yellow leaves. 


For our colour challenges, you must use all of the stated challenge colours.  You may also use neutral colours such as white, ivory, black, grey, brown, or metallics; however, the challenge colours should be the most noticeable ones featured on your card.  You may not include any other colors on your card.  We use Stampin' Up colour names for reference, but you are welcome to use any other companies' products as long as you match the challenge colours as closely as possible.

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