CAS-Colour and Sketches #8

Gosh, I can hardly believe we are now on our 8th Challenge at CAS-Colour and Sketches. I loved visiting your blogs last week and can't wait to see what you come up with this week!

This week is a colour challenge and we are using this stampin' up colour combo:

I just love this combo but remember, if you don't have the exact colours, just use a colour close to it.

I used these colours to make a 'get well' card for my Mum to give to her very oldest friend who is in hospital. My Mum loves cards with die cuts, buttons, ribbons etc. I have managed to use these elements and still make the card CAS! See what you think;

The papers all from stampin' up. The button is from my stash. The die cuts are a mix and match. Now, are you sitting down??? Because, this week I have not used the linen impression plate but the PTI wood grain plate. This plate also adds texture and I think matches with the flower theme.

Pop over here to see the cards our DT have made to inspire you. Then its time for you to get creating.
As I have used these flower and leaf die cuts I am entering this into the 'Die Cut/Punches' challenge at Make My Monday
And as I used a different impression plate I am going to enter this car (with pride!!) into the 'Embossing' challenge at Addicted to CAS

Happy Stamping and I will be visiting your blogs very soon I hope!
