*CAS Colours & Sketches #451*

Welcome to the first CAS Colours & Sketches challenge for 2022!  If you are new to this challenge, this is a weekly clean and simple challenge that has one week a colour challenge and the next week a sketch challenge.  Each member of the Design Team hosts for a month... and this month, our host is Joanne.  As always, you must use the challenge colours as the prominent colours in your creation, however you can include neutrals as well.  If you don't have these Stampin' Up! colours, improvise with whatever is in your stash, as long as you get as close as you can to these colours

I'm excited to be a part of this design team, but let me tell you, this one challenged me as I don't think I would have put pink and red with purple on my own!  If I didn't have a commitment to design something for this challenge, I probably would have skipped this challenge!

I guess I learned I need to push myself a little bit...

Items Used
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Highland Heather, Petal Pink, Poppy Parade, Grey Granite
*Stamps:  Studio Katia Birthday Greetings
*Ink:  Versafine Clair Nocturne
*Dies:  Stampin' Up! Pierced Blooms; Memory Box Knotted Circle Wreaths
*Embellishments:  Studio Katia Tiny Iridescent Bubbles

I hope you'll play along with us this week!  I look forward to seeing what you do with these colours!!  Share your creations HERE!


  1. Nancy, I have to admit this color combo was tricky for me too, but your card turned out beautiful!! :)

  2. Well Nancy, you totally rose to the challenge - your sweet floral wreath is CAS perfection! I often struggle with colour challenges (I'm a sketch girl!) so totally understand the dilemma. A fabulous CAS card and delighted to have you join the team!

  3. You "pushed yourself" so brilliantly, this flowery wreath is delightful! BTW, I had trouble with this color palette too. I'm so glad to share this new adventure with you.

  4. This is the perfect use of colors presented! The wreath is so beautiful and looks cozy.
