Challenge #233 - Sketch

Good Morning,
This is my last week hosting the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenges.  It's been especially fun seeing your July makes.  This week is a sketch.


Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch when creating your card.  Use your imagination - we just need to be able to see the sketch reflected in your design!

Here is some inspiration from the design team to jump start your creativity:

Weekly Winners - Sketch Challenge #231

Thank you to everyone who participated in last week's challenge!  We loved seeing what everyone created!  Unfortunately, some entries were disqualified from the Design Team's weekly voting because they didn't follow the challenge rules which are posted here.  Just a reminder, rotating and manipulating the sketch is welcome, however, we have to be able to see the sketch clearly represented in your design.

The Design Team has chosen the following cards as our Weekly Winners.  In order of entry into the challenge, we congratulate:


Awesome job, everyone! Please feel welcome to copy our winners' badge and display it on your blog:

Challenge #232 - Colours

Cathy here with this week's CC&S Challenge.  I tend to using bold colours in my cards rather than soft pastels and am pushing myself to feature the pastel colors rather than use them as an accent.  I'm looking forward to seeing what you all do with this combination.   Your work is sure to be inspiring!


We've used Stampin' Up colour names for reference; however, you may use any companies' products for your cards as long as you match our colours as closely as possible. You may also use neutral colours (white, cream, kraft, brown, grey, or black) for card layers, sentiments, and image outlines. However, in order to be considered for our weekly winners, you must not use any other colours.

Here is some inspiration from the design team to jump start your creativity:

Just a reminder - our challenges are for clean and simple styled cards.  We define "clean and simple" as "uncluttered, with white or open space, and minimal layers and embellishments".  A complete list of our challenge requirements is listed in the Challenge Rules tab.  Please read it carefully before linking your card.  Happy crafting!
