CAS Colours & Sketches #181

Here we are at the beginning of July with the first CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge for the month. These colours were chosen by Caro our hostess for this week's challenge. We're doing things a bit differently throughout July and August and taking it in turns to host one challenge each - gives everyone a bit of a break during the busy Summer holiday months.

And today's card uses my new totally swoonable Touches of Texture stamp set from Stampin Up. I'm thinking this one might just replace Gorgeous Grunge as my all time favourite.

I started with the stem, then the splattery flower head and finally the sprinkles - all from this new set.

And I chose the sentiment because..... well it says it all really!

Stamps: SU, Touches of Texture & Botanicals For You
Inks: SU, cucumber crush, soft suede, elegant eggplant

So off you go now and be totally inspired by the rest of the DT creations at CC&S. And did you know we also have a facebook page? It'd be great if you decided to follow us.

Thanks for your time and company today.  And keep crafting!

  7. I love the simplicity of your card - it's CAS perfection! I also like how you, Karen, and I all used the word "awesome" on our cards this week, and all three cards are so different! :)

  8. I was determined not to buy this set but you may be changing my mind! It's so beautifully CAS, or actually awesome. Sorry to be so late commenting, I had a last minute business trip which got in the way rather. Liz x
