Challenge #250 - Colours & It's Our Birthday!

Welcome!  You're just in time for the party!  CAS Colours & Sketches is celebrating its 250th challenge and its 5th Birthday this week!  We are so thankful for our challenge participants who have made this incredible milestone possible.

In order to celebrate, we're giving out lots of birthday presents to our challenge followers!  Five of our Design Team members are having giveaways!  In order to be eligible to win one of those prizes, you'll need to leave a comment on their individual blogs, linked above their cards, before this challenge ends.  And in case that isn't exciting enough, we are teaming up once again with an amazing sponsor, Uniko!  Five of our participants in this week's challenge will be chosen to receive an in-stock stamp set of their choice from Uniko!  Awesome, right?!  Since you have to play in order to win, let's get on with the challenge details...

Samantha is here with some fun colors for our birthday celebration challenge. All of us are excited to see what you can create with these bright, cheery colors.


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.

Here is some inspiration from the design team to jump start your creativity:

We would like to extend a very special thank you to Uniko for sponsoring our challenge this week!

Our November Guest Designer is no stranger to CC&S.  Although she was chosen from among our September Weekly Winners, we discovered while looking through our archives that she's been participating in our challenges since 2013!  We think you'll enjoy her CAS creations.  Please join us in welcoming Colien!  Here's the card she made for this week's challenge:
