CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge # 233

The last challenge for July is a sketch and this is what Cathy has for us.


I had lots of ideas as to what I wanted to do with this sketch - so many that I couldn't decide which was my favourite. In the end, I decided on this card because it's something suitable for all genders.

Oh no, a ladybird has escaped!

This weekend I had fun playing with the Sharing Sweet Thoughts stamp set. This set is this year's charity stamp set in aid of the Ronald McDonald House Charities, and for each stamp set sold  £2.00 is donated to the charities.

What challenges you the most?

Do you have a favourite pack/sheet of patterned paper that you simply look at, think about using, and then put away again untouched because you just can't bring yourself to cut it up? I'm sure that this is a situation that a lot of paper crafters are familiar with, me included.

This month I challenged my team to take the plunge and cut up a sheet of their favourite designer series paper from the 2017 catalogue.

I have two favourites - Delightful Daisy and Petal Garden. For the challenge I opted to use the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (DSP).

CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge # 232

Cathy has a colour challenge for us this week.


For some this reason the colour combination caused me some difficulties and there were quite a few attempts left to one side before I had something that I was happy with.

This card features the stunning rose from the Graceful Garden stamp set.
