CAS Colours & Sketches May Guest!

I am thrilled to be the guest for the month of May at CAS Colours & Sketches.  It's a fun challenge to play along with because some weeks are colors, some are sketches and if there's a fifth week in a month they have a double challenge!  The first week is colors and here they are...

It's a trio of Stampin' Up in-colors! (You don't have to use Stampin' Up colors, the names are just given for reference.)  I do have all the Stampin' Up colors - and I do mean all - going back to the beginning of time!  So I pulled out my cardstock and matching sequins and created a trio of butterflies.

CAS Colours: In My Thoughts

I had just browsed the Stampin' Up retirement list (and had ordered patterned paper and the faceted dots in the above colors which showed up late yesterday - too late for this card). I also ordered the stamp set that went with the Seasonal Layers dies so they were in my head. Thank goodness because I think this branch was a great backdrop for the sweet little butterflies.  I tend to use white backgrounds but I thought these colors popped beautifully on Crumb Cake and that allowed me to use a fresh white branch.

I hope to see you playing along with us this week.  A big thank you to the team at CAS Colours & Sketches for letting me part of their group this month!

Stamps: Stampin' Up Watercolor Wishes, Butterfly Gala
Dies: Stampin' Up Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies, Butterfly Duet Punch
Cardstock: Stampin' Up Purple Posy, Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock, Crumb Cake
Other: Stampin' Up Woven Threads Sequin Assortment
