CAS Colours and Sketches #384

The team over at the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge blog is back with another color trio for you to play with this week.  We're in the middle of a very hot Florida summer so I'm finding this set of spring colors very refreshing.

For our color challenges, you must use all of the stated challenge colors. You may also use neutral colors; however, the challenge colors should be the most noticeable ones featured on your card. We use Stampin' Up color names for reference, but you are welcome to use any other companies' products as long as you match the challenge colors as closely as possible. 

You know how I love cards created with die cuts.  For my card I chose three card stock colors that closely matched the challenge colors and went to town.    

The balloon string appears more blue in the first photo however you can see in the close up that it is definitely pool in color.  

To create my card I started by applying some white texture paste to the purple card stock and then set it aside to dry.  I next die cut out the bear and the balloon.  (It took three passes in three colors to get all of the bear's components.)  I assembled all of the components onto a small stitched rectangle of white card stock and then added some highlights in with a white gel pen.  I chose to stamp a Hugs sentiment which makes this card very versatile.  Once the background panel was dry I adhered it to the card base of 110 lb. Neenah Solar White and centered the white panel on top.
