Refreshing Colours for CAS Challenge

Have I mentioned how thrilled I am about Stampin' Up's "Colour Refresh"?!  I am so excited that some colours are staying (Pool Party, Island Indigo...yay!) and that some are coming back!  About this time last year I fell in love with "Blushing Bride" while making my daughter's birth announcements.  I was sad to see it go last year to make way for new In Colours but it's coming back along with Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky, Bermuda Bay, and Crushed Curry!  Yay!!!

So, in celebration, I used "Blushing Bride" and "Pear Pizzazz" in one of my cards for my Mother's Day Make and Take tomorrow evening.   For sketch inspiration I turned to CAS - Colours and Sketches Challenge.  Here is this week's sketch:

CAS - Colours and Sketches Challenge #20

Here is my card:

Pretty, eh?  I love the softness of the Blushing Bride and Crumb Cake card stocks together.   I also used Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight.  I finally got my hands on some Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon and really wanted to use it here.  While it's hard to see here, I also used some Basic Pearls on either side of the sentiment.

I'm looking forward to seeing what my guests do with this card tomorrow evening!

Happy Stamping!
