CAS Colours and Sketches #400

Happy Tuesday everyone!  It's time for our last CAS Colours and Sketches challenge of 2020.  I've had a wonderful time on the blog this year however I am not in the least bit sorry to see this year come to an end, that's for sure.  

In addition to a fun holiday challenge twist we have two announcements.  Wanna hint?  Let's just say it involves a fabulous prize and new Design Team members.  Check out the blog for details!

Challenge #400 is to take any sketch, color trio or double challenge from 2020 and create a seasonal card.  (You may also combine any sketch and color trio for your own personal double challenge.)  I very immodestly chose one of my color trios because I loved it so much.  *blush*

My Choice ---

I also rather immodestly piggybacked off of a card that Wei created that week.  I loved it so much and wanted to create something similar.  

I used Distress Oxides and a rectangle stencil to blend out my background.  I cut it down using a stitched border die, leaving plenty of white margin and enough room for my navy card base to show.  I added the deer and some white cardstock snowflakes.  All it needed was a simple sentiment. 

I whipped up several of these lovely blue backgrounds and created two additional cards that I will share later this week. 

MFT Delightful Deer die
MFT - Santa Elves stamp set (sentiment)
PoppyStamps - Snowflake Oval Collage die
Taylored Expression - Rectangle 6x6 mask
Distress Oxides

Be sure to stop by the blog to say hello to our new teammates as well as see how you can enter to win a fabulous prize from Uniko.  

Stay safe and healthy my friends!  

Thank you for visiting my little crevice of the crafty blogosphere.  Your time, comments and friendship are much appreciated.  

Happy Crafting!
