CAS Colours & Sketches - Double Challenge #208

It's the 5th Tuesday in January so that means it's a double challenge - sketch and colours.  This is what Karen has for us this week.

The suggested colours are ones that were around before I was a Stampin' Up! demo but the challenge rules allow us to use other colours so long as they closely match the ones in the actual challenge. I came to the conclusion that Cajun Craze, Mint Macaron and Peekaboo Peach were the closest but you may think otherwise.

Some of you probably know that square cards are somewhat out of my comfort zone. I've no idea why that is, but even so, I thought I'd stick with it this time around. So, here's what I came up with.

I used the That's the Tag stamp set along with the co-ordinating Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies. I used the die to cut the leaves in the Whisper White circle and also the small flower with leaves.

You may recognise the image that I stamped on the Peekaboo Peach cardstock (in Peekaboo Peach). It's one of the three Delicate Details stamps that I used last week.

Of course I had to stamp the insert too.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my design. Ever thought about entering?  It's really easy and all you have to do is follow the challenge rules (basically "Clean and Simple" is defined as "uncluttered, with white or open space, and minimal layers and embellishments") and then link/post a picture of your project on the CC&S Challenge Blog.
