CAS Colours & Sketches #170

How time flies! I can't believe it's already time for the next colour challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches. And another fabulous combo this week chosen by Louise.

I often play around with the colours on scrap paper first and almost immediately came up with the brown and pink flower cluster. That just left me with the turquise to think about.

It was while I was taking a break and out in my garden that I came up with the idea of a strip of blue behind the flowers - might have had something to do with a rare sighting of blue sky. I kept my card to a CAS one layer by masking off the flowers before stamping the lines.

Yes that is five gem stones - makes a change from my usual trio - finishing off my card along with my signature one rounded corner.

Stamps: Uniko, Beautiful Blooms III & Simply Said; SU, Gorgeous Grunge
Inks: SU, blushing bride, chocolate chip, tempting turquiose
Embellishments: Hobby House pearls, chocolate heaven 

Ok it's your turn now, looking forward to seeing how you create with CC&S colours.

Thanks for looking today, I'm grateful for your time.  And keep crafting!
