CAS(E) This Sketch #40 + RIC #41 + Color Throwdown 254

I have two cards for three challenges today. The first one combines CAS(E) This Sketch #40 with Color Thrown Down #245.






I find color challenges the most difficult, but since my friend Melody Rupple has joined the Color Throwdown Design Team, I had to play along.




I combined a couple of Memory Box dies with a My Favorite Things sentiment and pinked edge die to put together this card.

This second card is my first time participating in the Runway Inspired Challenge, where the fashion industry provides current and trendy creative inspiration. 






I took a few elements from the photo to create this card.




The color palette is definitely taken from the inspiration photo - including using a Soft Stone cardstock for the card base. The sentiment banner echos the curves and folds of the dress as it is tucked around the floral panel.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie

  5. These are both fabulous. You are great at color challenges. I don't know why you don't do them all the time. I really like how you put a die cut back into the negative space with a different color on your first card.
