CAS Colours & Sketches #168


It's time for a new challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches, with a new month comes a new hostess too. This month the lovely Louise is hosting the challenges and starting them off with this lovely colour combo...

Isn't that a lovely combination of bright and cheery colours? So many wonderful options as to how to use them too! 

This is how I have used them...

With a colour combo like this I would normally reach for florals, but I have been wanting to use Background Builders: Triangulate for some time now and I was inspired to do so for my card today :)

I started by marking the centre of my CS panel using a pencil down the middle and again about 5 cm horizontally. This helped me to keep the stamped triangles straight and evenly spaced. I started with the middle triangle and stamped outwards in both directions. 

The sentiment is from Simply Said and I added some SU! It's My Party Enamel Dots to embellish the card before adhering the stamped panel to the white card base using foam adhesive.

A very clean & simple card, just the way I like it! Anyway, be sure to head on over HERE to join in on the challenge & be inspired by the rest of the CC&S Design Team.

Thanks for stopping by & I hope to see you in the gallery :)
