Color Dare 99


Color Dare 99
Marina Mist
Cherry Cobbler
Basic Grey


This is my last Color Dare Design Team card.  My six month term has come to an end all to quickly.  I wish to thank Riley for this wonderful opportunity.  I have truly enjoyed myself and accumulated some wonderful colour combinations :)   

This week's colours are no exception.  Riley came up with another wonderful masculine colour combination, but I decided not to go that route as I did a masculine card with last week's colours.  My card is not overly feminine and a bit on the dramatic side, but a lovely colour combination none-the-less.  

I used last week's Clean and Simple layout and cheated a bit by adding black as an accent colour as it gave the bit of punch I needed.  Basically kept to the sketch and pulled out the matching nestie, one I got a while back and have not used much yet.  The sentiment, Phillipians 4:13, is from Verve, and I framed it with some flowers.  My ribbon came from a Michaels' ribbon bin diving adventure and isn't as dark as Basic Grey (I'm being a real rebel on my last card LOL!), but it still works nicely with the colours.


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 CD99.   Each week, Riley will select a Featured Stamper and showcase your card on her blog.

Thanks for stopping by and joining me in these challenges. It has been a delight to see your creations.  Though I won't be on the Design Team after this week's Dare, I'm sure I'll be popping in and enjoying a few of the challenges along the way.  Have a fabulous day :)

Lovely design, Marisa! The flowers along the side of the Nestie are a great accent, and I love the two little pearls in the corner!

Marisa, I'm sorry to hear that your term is up for Color Dare. I'm sure you've had loads of fun, though, and you always did such great sample cards for their challenges. This is a great 'last' card, though, featuring your $1 bin dive treasure!

My first reaction to the colors was "masculine combo" and you used them perfectly in a gorgeous, non-masculine card =) Love the layer combination!
