SNS April Sketch and CAS challenges


The CAS challenge was easy and combined with SCS's Color Challenge: So Saffron, Bashful Blue and Close to Cocoa. For this I used Bashful Blue cs with coordinating blue stripe, So Saffron Ribbon and Close to Cocoa ink for the verse from SNSS Rejoice in the Lord. My card is actually 5x5, but the scanner only picked up part of it, not sure why! I added a flower punched from the three colors and finished with a rhinstone brad.


The sketch challenge is designed by Suzy. I chose SNSS Sweet Dreams stamp set stamped on white cs, colored and mounted on the SU dsp to add dimension to the card. The colors are Blush Blossom, Bashful Blue and Mellow Moss. I used the D'vine Swirl CB folder to emboss the card base.

It seems like I am only able to enter a few challenges these days, but I'm hoping to have more time again soon.
