Challenge Time

I've been busy over the last few days (and weeks if the truth be known) with preparation for the Stampin' Up! OnStage Local event that takes place this coming Saturday up in Telford.  All my swaps, WOW swaps and team gifts are finished, so I just had time to make this card for the latest CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge.

This week it's a sketch

As you will see, I've kept my card very simple.

I used some of the black & white striped paper from the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper and punched three Melon Mambo flowers using the Petite Petals punch. To finish off the flowers I added some Melon Mambo Enamel Shapes (from the Brights set).

The greeting which was stamped in Melon Mambo comes from the Best Birds stamp set.

I hope you like the card and please feel free to leave a comment.

I'll share news from Telford over the weekend, but please check back before that to find out about something new and exciting.

  1. Ack, love this card! So elegant and wonderfully CAS! Thanks for playing along with us at CC&S!

  2. So pretty! Love the contrast of the pink and black. Thanks for playing at CC&S.

  3. The flowers seem dainty in size and shape, but their color packs a bold punch against the simple black and white color scheme! Awesome! Thanks so much for sharing your card with us at CC&S! :)

  4. LOVE those bold black stripes and the pink pop of the pretty flowers. Fabulous use of the sketch. Thanks for joining in at CC&S. Hugs Bev x
