CAS Colours and Sketches #409

This is my second of two posts scheduled for today so if you haven't seen my first one, please continue scrolling.  Thank you!


I cannot believe that we're turning the calendar page to another month already.  I really enjoyed my month of host over at the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge blog but it's time to hand the reigns over to my very talented team mate YoonYoung.  She's starting us out with a new color trio.  Check it out!

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.     

An interesting choice, wouldn't you agree?  I grabbed a sheet of Coral Calypso cardstock from my stash and then did some searching to find colors similar to the green and terracotta and created another die cut birthday card.

I die cut the flowers from both apple green and terracotta cardstock colors.  I adhered them to a die cut arched panel cut from a white wood-grained cardstock.  I used a cover plate die to create the background texture on my coral cardstock and then assembled my card.  The sentiment was heat embossed in white onto the coral cardstock and popped up over the stems.  I resisted the urge to add clear gems.  Walk away Julie....just walk away....

You have until Monday evening to share your card with us.  I hope to see your in our gallery!
