Tricky Color Dare!

You know I love color combos, and this week's Color Dare gave me a challenge to stretch a bit! Peach Parfait, Rich Razzleberry and Sahara Sand would never have met in my home on one card if this challenge had not come up!

This card features lots of punches and dies. I used the Top Note die, then embossed with perfect polka dots. I also used Little Leaves sizzlit with peach parfait pattern paper from the Hostess Level 1 pack. I punched out 5-petal flowers in very vanilla, sponged with peach and razzleberry, and added glimmer brads from the Holiday Mini. I used markers for this wonderful sentiment from All Holidays, then added the Teeny Tiny Wishes birthday stamp on the word window. This is going to an area SU demo for a birthday card swap. I better make more!

I'll be working on the 2 Color Dares that I missed. Actually, I completed one (6 cards!), but sent them off for a swap before getting a picture. Hopefully I can get quality stamping time in this upcoming weekend to catch up! (Our silly jobs get in the way of stamping, don't they?)

  1. This is a tricky color combo (my project is currently sitting on my desk...waiting...) but you did an amazing job with it. Love the punches and die cuts. The glimmer brads are a perfect accent, I just love those little gems! Very pretty! :)

  2. excellent use of these colors...not sure i could come up with something so great

  3. I love all the punches and dies that you used on this card. They all work really well together! I also really like the color challenge although I wouldn't have naturally put them together either. Great job, Kim!

  4. Gorgeous! Love the layout! Thanks for playing along with the Color Dare and congrats on being the Featured Stamper!

  5. That looks like a tough color palette. You did a great job!

  6. cute card! Lots of neat colors lately girl!
