Color Dare 82


COLOR DARE 82
Daffodil Delight
Night of Navy
Old Olive



This was such a fun colour combination to work with, I will definitely be using it again :)  I haven't used Night of Navy all that much, but the more I use it the more I love it.  Plus, it looks stunning with olive and celery, two of my favorite greens.

Once again, I paired this week's colours with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch - can you tell I love her sketches LOL!  The large focal panel  made me immediately think of one of my favorite Stampin' Up sets, For All You Do.  I haven't used it for a while due to my recent Verve flower craze, so out it came. 

Some Girl's Papier polka dotted olive DP was a perfect match and accented with saffron all round.

The rest of the Team has lots of inspiration for you.  You can check out their creations here:

We'd love you to join us!  Simply create a card using this week's colours and add your card to InLinkz on the The Colour Dare Blog.  If  you are uploading to a public gallery, please make sure to use the keyword CD82.   Each week, Riley will select a Featured Stamper and showcase your card on her blog.


Thanks for stopping in and have a great day :)

So lovely, Marisa. It definitely has that WRM flair! I'll have to play along with this challenge, too, sometime. Seems like there aren't enough crafting hours in the day to do all the challenges I would love to do.
