CAS Colours & Sketches #252 - Seasonal Colours

Hey & Happy December!

I can't believe we are into December and Christmas is just around the corner! I'm am SO behind on Christmas preparations amongst all my other 'things to do', I wish time would slow down a little - argh!

Anyway, THIS week at CAS Colours & Sketches we want you to choose a colour combo from all the ones in 2017 and make it seasonal! 

I decided to reuse one of the colour combos when I was hostess this year. This one is from Challenge #230 in July.

This is how I have used them to create a Christmas card...

I thought the colours were suitable for holly & berries, so I dusted off my Background Builders: Winter Vines Additions and used one of the holly leaves pairs and randomly stamped them on half of my card in Lemon Lime Twist ink. I then went in and stamped the berries in Berry Burst. 

The sentiment is from Festive Sentiments stamped in and on Island Indigo. Then I have mounted the panel onto my card base using foam adhesive. Super simple! 

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 to see more inspiration from the Design Team.

I look forward to seeing you in the gallery!
