Color Dare 91



Color Dare 91
Tempting Turquoise
Pear Pizzazz
Tangerine Tango

This wonderful mix of colours Riley has come up with this week made my mind turn to Spring.  The bright colours reminded me of flowers and that was all the excuse I needed to make a flower card LOL!  Will definitely be looking it often as I watch the snow fall outside!  Thankfully, rain is coming tomorrow so it will last just long enough for the kids to enjoy some sledding down the hill at the school.

I paired this week's colours with an old Technostamper sketch as it was perfect for creating a flower scene.  Out came my Verve Many Blessings set and to work I went.  I stamped an extra flower of each and cut out the middle layer to pop up for some dimension, used some ruffled ribbon for grass, added a few butterflies and half pearls, and voila, my spring flowers emerged :)  A wonderful reminder that Spring will come.


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 CD91.   Each week, Riley will select a Featured Stamper and showcase your card on her blog.

Thank you for reminding us Spring will come. It takes soooo long. LOL
Love your stand of grass..very clever. And, those flowers came up and bloomed so pretty. It's a very pretty card, Marisa.
Thanks for the re-visit to my card I cased for you. I have been on blogger for over an hour trying to upload my Stampin B's card, but there are blogger problems. I hear others are having the same problem so I'm glad it is not just me.

You're braver than me girl! Colour Challenges freak me out at the best of times, but when they come in these scary colours, I'd be running and hiding, not turning out a beauty like this!! :)

Well this is such a bright and happy card. Great idea to give those flowers a little "pop." I'd say you aced this challenge!
