Color Dare 84


Color Dare 84
Pear Pizzazz 
Night of Navy 
Soft Suede

What a wonderful colour combination Riley came up with this week.  I knew today's card was going to be a round one because my new lacy circle nesties just had to be broken in :)  It's also been a while since I made a button bouquet.  I put the celery at the bottom as the "grass" and built my bouquet from there.  Added to the fun was using two varieties of my beloved dots :)  Yes, I was a happy stamper making this card LOL!

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

This is really cool Marisa. I love the colors together. Your buttons are perfect. This set has so many possibilities. I have never made a round card..

Gorgeous! Love the wonderful textures and the clean lines. What I want to know it how did you get it to stand up perfectly without tilting to the side? Ancient Chinese secret? Anyway...it looks fabulous and you definitely rocked this challenge! (And no double ovals to trip you up, thank goodness! lol)

It totally works because of the different sizes :) Looks like you have been on a little shopping spree ;) Have a great long weekend :) Tony leaves for NZ on Sat until just before Christmas :( so it's going to be very quiet on the homefront this month.
