Challenge # 223 - Colours

Hello one and all, Fiona here. This is my first ever turn to host a challenge (gulp) and this week I have a colour challenge for you. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

We've used Stampin' Up colour names for reference; however, you may use any companies' products for your cards as long as you match our colours as closely as possible. You may also use neutral colours (white, cream, kraft, brown, grey, or black) for card layers, sentiments, and image outlines. However, in order to be considered for our weekly winners, you must not use any other colours.

Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch when creating your card.

Challenge #222 - Sketch

Hi folks, Karen here. May and June are fun months where we get to enjoy the summer and just host 1 week. This week you get me :)

I am bringing you a sketch. It is actually based on a card I made earlier this year and a little birdie told me it would make a good challenge. I hope you have fun with it!

Challenge #221 - Colours

Hello!  Welcome back for a new month!  For May and June, the CC&S Design Team members are each taking a week to act as challenge hostess.  Samantha is starting the month of May off with a color challenge.  I've chosen a few colors that have a spring feel to me. I'm excited to see what everyone comes up with.

We've used Stampin' Up colour names for reference; however, you may use any companies' products for your cards as long as you match our colours as closely as possible. You may also use neutral colours (white, cream, kraft, brown, grey, or black) for card layers, sentiments, and image outlines.
