Happy Birthday CAS Colours & Sketches!


You're just in time for the party!

CAS Colours & Sketches is celebrating its 250th challenge and its 5th Birthday THIS week!  Everyone at CC&S are so thankful for our challenge participants who have made this milestone possible.

In celebration CAS Colours & Sketches are teaming up once again with UNIKO as their sponsor for this weeks challenge! Whoohoo! 

Five of the participants in this week's challenge will be chosen to receive an in-stock stamp set of their choice from Uniko!  Awesome, right?  Since you have to play in order to win, let's get on with the challenge details... 

Samantha is here with some fun colors for our birthday celebration challenge. All of us are excited to see what you can create with these bright, cheery colours.

We've used Stampin' Up colour names for reference; however, you may use any companies' products for your cards as long as you match our colours as closely as possible. You may also use neutral colours (white, cream, kraft, brown, grey, or black) for card layers, sentiments, and image outlines. However, in order to be considered for our weekly winners, you must not use any other colours.

Here's how I have used this weeks colours...

There are so many wonderful things associated with birthdays, but what's better (apart from cake and presents) than some bright and cheerful birthday balloons?! 

I decided to ink up Balloon Bash for my card today and simply did some creative masking and stamping to achieve a little trio cluster of balloons in opposing corners of my card.

After stamping the balloons I added some hand drawn balloon strings and stamped some circle confetti, adding a shimmery enamel dot to three of the confetti dots.

The simple sentiment is from Simply Said and I've die cut both the stamped panel and Pacific Point blue panel using Lawn Fawn Small Dotted Rectangle Stackables dies. 

That's all I have to share with you today, but be sure to head on over to the CAS Colours & Sketches blog post HERE to enter the challenge AND check out the other Design Team blogs and leave some love to be in the chance of winning blog candy from those who have some on offer this week ;)

I look forward to seeing you in the gallery!
