CAS-Colour and Sketches

Hello crafting chums,

Today I am super excited to tell you about Jacqueline's fantastic new challenge site. Plus I am super, super excited to tell you that I am on the design team for this challenge-my very first DT!! I feel very privileged to join this team of very talented Ladies.
The challenge site is CAS-Colour and Sketches. Yep, that's right, you get to play along some weeks with colour combos, some with sketches and then we have 'The Double' where we have both a colour combo and a sketch!
And to start us off with a bang we are having 'The Double'. That is this sketch:

And this colour combo:

Your challenge is to make a card using the sketch and colours as your inspirations. Only cards for this challenge and keep as close as possible to the colours. There are a few other rules that you can view here on the blog. BUT the main thing is to have fun!

Enough of this rambling, here is my card for you this week:

Now, I know these colours scream Autumn but I decided to go Christmas for a change. I didn't have 'cherry cobbler' ink so went for a colour as close as possible. I flipped the sketch and took very CAS interpretation of it using these little PTI border stamps to represent the squares. The verse is a Verve stamp. All the card stock has been embossed using my, much loved, PTI linen impression plate. A few little gems to match the 'pumpkin' sentiment stamp and there you go!
And it being a very special day, I have decorated the inside:

Now pop on over to the other DT members site JacquelineLouiseKylie, we would love to know what you think of our cards and this new challenge site.

Happy Crafting x
