Color Dare 98


Color Dare #98
Perfect Plum
Always Artichoke
Neutral of Choice


Another fun colour combination by Riley this week. My neutral of choice was white (with a touch of black).  I combined this week's colours with the the last Verve sketch for February, which my blogging buddy Andrea created.  I am SO thankful she didn't create a sketch with a skewed panel LOL!  Two in a month is more than enough for me LOL!  The diagonal was a fun twist. 


I found this wonderful Basic Grey Kioshi paper that was a perfect fit for this week's colours.   I polka dotted the Plum panel and combined my scalloped square and Label 16 dies for the sentiment panel (love that Label 16 shape!).  A touch of black accents and was good to go :)  Nothing too elaborate this week as time was short, just a fun, quick card to make.

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

Fabulous...you make it look soo easy! What a find with those papers, too! Great sentiment and I adore how you stamped the sentiment over the muted stamped flowers. Just dee-lightful!

Yay for you--nothing askew here!! A lovely job with both challenges. Love the Kioshi paper. I really need to pull mine out. Maybe today!

So pretty, Marisa! I love the flowers stamped behind the sentiment. The Labels 16 has to be one of my faves, but it's still on my wish list! It looks wonderful matted with the scalloped square.
