Colour Q #268

Hello bloggers!

Has Tuesday really come round again? I feel like all the days are blending into each other at the moment and every time I think of Christmas I have a slight pang of mild panic!

What better way to cope with Christmas stress than to make a card? This week's Colour Q challenge is another combo of Autumn hues, with a little bit of aqua blue thrown in:

I've combined my offering with another challenge  - CAS(E) This Sketch is celebrating a milestone this week, with it's 100th sketch!

I used a heap of patterned papers for this - a great way to use all the colours if you're a little short on ink pads.  I die cut and layered some Nestability Fancy Squares and added a  die cut sentiment from MFT.   I created a shadow by cutting it in white and olive, just so it pops a little against the white cardstock.

Do go and check out all the other creations this week but the DT - and send them some love while you're at it!

Thanks for popping by,



  1. What a great design and I LOVE the thin shadow on your hello!

  2. Very cool card, Claire! I love all the interest you achieved with your patterned layers!! Hugs, Darnell

  3. I love your card...so beautiful and it has a bit of vintage look to me that I really love.

  4. Oh, this is beautiful! Wonderful take on the sketch!

  5. You have such a way with DP, Claire, always combining so impeccably ... this is fabulous, love the shadowed hello! Anita :)
