Loving these CAS Challenges!!

There's another brand new CAS challenge out there!  I first saw it on Vicky's blog.  I had some free time yesterday with all of my men out of the house, but wouldn't you know, I couldn't get a single card to come together.  Then, I saw that Mynette had played along.  That inspired me to give it one more try!

The challenge is CAS - Colours & Sketches.  They have a monthly schedule and since this month had a fifth week - the challenge was a double - BOTH colors and sketches.

I can't say I am absolutely thrilled with the results of my card, but if you saw everything in the garbage can yesterday, you would realize that relatively, this is actually quite good!!

Happy Day to You

Fun card, if I can find some personal stamping time today, I will have to give it a whirl! I have to design and assemble a 100 cards before I can play though! Wish me luck!

You do make me giggle Kim - you wouldn't be able to make a 'garbage can' card if you tried! This is gorgeous. I love your vibrant tiles with that funky patterned butterfly. Vicky x

LOVE your take on this challenge! I must say that it is not easy to get the sketch and colors right at the same time...for a CAS card! You've inspired me, Kim!
