*CAS Colours & Sketches Two-fer part 1*

When the CAS Colours & Sketches colour challenge went live yesterday, I was excited to get to play, but I had appointments so I had to put off creating.  By the time I got home 5 hours later, I wasn't in a great mood but I still wanted to create.  I had an idea in my head for the colours so I went ahead and started working on it.  It took me almost two hours and I honestly wasn't thrilled with the card I created.  But my mood wasn't conducive to more creating so I walked away from my creative space.

I woke up early this morning and I wasn't able to fall back to sleep.... as I lay there in the dark trying to will myself back to sleep, another idea came to my head for the colour combination so as soon as I was up and ready for my day, I was in my craft space to put that idea in to practice.  The idea morphed just a bit, but this card came together in about 15 minutes.... and I love it!

So today, you are getting two cards for the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge....

First, the card I made yesterday that didn't thrill me... it's OK, but it wasn't quite what I wanted...

Items Used
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Pear Pizzazz, Real Real Red, Shaded Spruce
*Dies:  Frantic Stamper Happy Holidays
*Embellishments:  Christmas Red Stickles; white gel pen; Nuvo Glitter Gloss


  1. The joys of creativity Nancy! I actually like the way you used the colours in 3 distinct 'blocks' - I think this works well for a CAS card. Thanks for playing along with us over at CAS Colours and Sketches this week!

  2. Lovely design with the challenge colors. Thanks for playing along with us at CAS Colours & SKetches Challenge. Looking forward to seeing your creative projects in the future galleries again.

  3. I love this one Nancy - my favourite of your entries! Love the weight of the colours with the bold red as the background. Thank you for coming to play at CAS Colours and Sketches! Vicky x
