Color Dare 86


Color Dare 86
Pumpkin Pie
Baja Breeze
Wild Wasabi
Cajun Craze

Loved the mix of fall colours Riley used this week with the pop of blue thrown in.   
I combined this week's Color Dare with Card Positioning Systems' sketch 193.
The pumpkin image is Verve's Bountiful Harvest and I coloured them with Twinkling H2O's and added some black half pearls to the end of each vine for a little something.  I think my ribbon may be closer to Bordering Blue than Baja Breeze, but it still looks good with the other colours so it must be a fairly close match - or so my story goes and I'm sticking to it :) 

If  you look at the bottom left corner you will see white stuff on the ground.  Yup, we got 5 inches of snow last Friday night and with the cold temps sticking around (-8C today with the wind chill -- that's 16F) it's still here.  Bummer is, Saturday was quite warm so the sledding hill at the school is now grass but the there is plenty on the ground elsewhere for the kids to play in.  They say we are in for a pretty bad winter this year, and we sure started off with a bang by having snow so early.  Will have to see what the rest of winter brings.  Thankfully, mommy is on the ball as we have snow boots and snow suits all ready to be used :)  Just a bit slow on mounting the snow tires, but they go on next week once my craft fair is over and I can join the life of the living again LOL! 

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

Christina said...

Those are the cutest pumpkins, especially with the tiny black gems on the vines! What a great use of these colors!

Maureen said...

love how all the colours work on this :) And I always think it's okay to substitute colours a tad bit...it's about the creativity first! We are still in freeze-down here (I write this as my car is warming up!). It says it should warm up by the weekend :) Hopefully blogger has corrected itself and good thing I've preposted some important posts already (pti blog hop tomorrow and Jake's birthday on Sunday :) Stay warm!

Fantastic card! I love how you added the black pearls at the end of the vines!

Kristina said...

Those colors really work well together! I don't think I would have ever thought to put them together. LOVE how you divided the circle into sections with the ribbon. The colored pumpkins look amazing sitting up top!

Enjoy some snow for me! I so miss it... It never really feels like winter or Christmas down here without it.

That was a tough combo with the blue thrown in, but you made it work so well! Love the pumpkin trio image! Lots to do, so no more stamping for me until we get back into town Sunday. Enjoy!
