CAS Colours & Sketches #260 - Colour Challenge

Welcome back to a new CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.  This week, Patricia has a colour challenge for us.

 I did a little online shopping recently; this stamp set, Vintage Teacups from Altenew is one on my new purchases.  I am a coffee drinker, but lots of folks in my family prefer tea, so I have a feeling I will get lots of use out of the set.  This particular card was a pain - and I spent the better part of a day working on it.  The original was stamped right onto the card front - lots of white space, but I thought it really needed the Sweet Sugarplum to tie in the flowers on the teacup.  I didn't have the ink, so I die cut a sentiment from Sweet Sugarplum paper. . . not quite right - and it was downhill from there!!  Too stubborn to start over - this was probably the fourth version.  It's not as CAS as I originally envisioned, but the Marina Mist strip down the side was needed to unify the colors.

Hope you will spend a little time on the CC&S Blog to check out what the DT has for you and then come and play along with us this week.
