Color Dare 82



Color Dare 82
Garden Green
Perfect Plum
Blushing Bride
Very Vanilla

If the sketch looks familiar, it is because I paired this week's colours with the same Sweet Sunday Sketch as last week because it had a large panel for me to work with. This time I kept true to the sketch and didn't rotate it.

The Garden Green was working me over until I saw my Inspired by Nature set and bingo, grass it would be LOL!  I added some butterflies and this fun Martha Stewart Border punch I haven't used for a while.  I needed something else to tie in the garden green and as luck would have it, I had the perfect button in that colour - score!  Love it when that happens:)  Not sure why my Perfect Plum paper and ink look so different, but they are the same, I promise!

 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 by today and have a great day :)

This is just gorgeous Marisa!! I love the way you put these colors together they are balanced just perfectly!!

I have the same problem with my plum paper and ink not matching. I sponged with the perfect plum ink on the pefect plum paper and they look so different.

Love this my dear, tfs!!!
