CAS-Colour and Sketches

Happy Friday Eve to all,

Today is not only a new colour combo challenge at CAS-Colour and Sketches but also my Birthday! Yes, one year older but some how I just don't seem to get one year wiser!! I will be celebrating with a meal tonight with my hubby and then on Saturday we are off to theatre to continue with the celebrations. And guess what I have got for my pressie?? Yes, you got it....crafting goodies and more crafting goodies!

And back to our challenge. This week the combo is:

I found some coral card stock and then did some masking and sponging with distress ink to make my card. The green is too dark and I did try to lighten it by sponging it with a coral ink but it still didn't make it as light as I wanted. So remember, you just need to get colours as close as you can to our combo and not to worry too much if the shade is not quite right......take my card as an example! I tried my first go at doodling around the edge with a promaker pen and also spritzed the sponged area to give the watermark effect-another first!

Our DT have some made some wonderful cards using this combo so take a peek here and then visit their blogs  and leave them some loving comments.
I will also be entering this into the CAS challenge at Totally Paper Crafts and the Flowers challenge at Love to Create
