Good morning and welcome to the very first challenge here at the CAS - Colours & Sketches Challenge Blog.
As this is the fifth Thursday of the month we are kicking off with The Double - a Colour and a Sketch.
Our challenges will start each month with a Colour challenge and will then alternate with a Sketch challenge. Any fifth week will be The Double!




Please create a Clean & Simple CARD following the rules (see the top tab or the side bar) and the above colours and sketch and link it below.
If you do not have the appropriate Stampin' Up colours in your stash please feel free to use the closest colours that you do have.
We would also like to add some more stampers to our DT - if you would like to be considered please add 'DT' after your name when you link up - thanks.
Now for some inspiration from the DT and I am pleased to say that for our first challenge we have a very special Guest Designer. Vicky is one of my blogging friends and in my opinion the Queen of CAS - please visit her blog and leave some lovely comments along with the rest of the DT.
