CAS266 -- Let the Birds Sing

The sun is shining. The temperature is to climb into the 50's this afternoon. I am not a real baseball fan, but it is opening day for the Tigers in Detroit. I can see the tops of my crocuses, daffodils and tulips. "This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it."

Today's CAS challenge was a color challenge. We were to use 3 or more colors from this Design Seeds color palette. What beautiful colors. They make on think of "bluebirds". The option to the challenge was to make a card with a bird theme.

Since I need to add to my supply of mascaline cards, this is the card that I created.

I used Stampin' UP stamp sets "Serene Silhouettes" and "Simply Sketched". The card stock I chose was Stampin' Up's Crumb Cake and Brocade Blue (retired). The stripped designer paper was from my scrap box. My ink was Memento Luxe in Espresso Truffle. This is a new pigment ink from Memento. Love it! I think that the stripped paper contains the 3 colors that I needed and more.
