Color Dare 93


Color Dare 93
Regal Rose
Pink Pirouette
Pacific Point

This was a fun colour combination to work with. Two pinks and pop of bright blue - and that Pacific Point sure is bright!

I decided to use this week's Card Positioning sketch and pulled out one of my favorite Verve flower sets - Great Friend.  I added some French Script in Rose Romance to the pink flower for some texture and couldn't resist using my crimper for the horizontal panel.  A few half pearls, some pink leaves (that took a bit of getting used to LOL!), and this fabulous Verve sentiment and I called it a card.  Now that I  look at the card, I think I should have added a line of piercing up to the thank you.  May have to try that.

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

Beautifully done Marissa!! You did a terrific job with that fabulous sketch as well as with this weeks colors!! I love it my dear!!

I just noticed that you are missing the "h" in my name, it says "Heater" which is the nickname my dad gave me so it brought a little smile to my face!!

Hugs
