CAS Colours and Sketches 200

CAS Colours and Sketches is one of my favourite challenges and I've played it a lot since discovering it way back at Challenge 96. Congratulations team, on running such a great challenge for such a long time.

The 200th challenge hit colour week and the challenge is this:

Lucky I like blue!

Dapper Denim has become a favourite blue. The butterfly's top lacy layer is Dapper Denim on white and the underlayer is plain Dapper Denim.  The Soft Sky banner is embossed using the Softly Falling folder. I did include four blues: Dapper Denim, Soft Sky, Marina Mist and a touch of Night of Navy.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAS Colours and Sketches!

Update: Delighted to be a Weekly Winner at CAS Colours and Sketches.

  1. Wonderful card! Love the collage feel and the offset panel. Thanks for playing along with us at CC&S!

  2. WOW! Love this card! Such a beautiful butterfly and a perfectly composed card, stunning!

  3. Jan, I always enjoy seeing what you create for our challenges! The layered lacy butterfly is so pretty! The offset panel is a refreshing diversion from the usual "even mat around all four sides" look. Thanks so much for being a frequent participant at CC&S and for joining in our birthday celebration! :)

  4. Beautiful CAS card, loving the layering of elements and the layout you have used. FAB use of the challenge colours too. Thanks so much for joining in on the celebrations at CC&S. Hugs Bev x
