A Crushing Dare!
Well, I missed the Color Dare the week of Thanksgiving, so I did not want to miss the next one. So, Riley posts last Wednesday for Color Dare #87, and it's Chocolate Chip, Concord Crush, and Perfect Plum. Oh my gosh!!! It really had me stumped!! I pulled out a few stamp sets, tossed ideas around...then made this last night. I had planned on adding an image (ice cream!) or an embellishment (bling!), but this time around, I felt less is more! Besides, I need lots of clean and simple thank you cards!
All of the supplies are from Stampin' Up! The card base is confetti white, with a layer of Concord Crush pattern paper from the Hostess Level 1 paper pack. I stamped the sentiment from the retired "So Very"set in chocolate chip, using it as a background type of pattern. I also used the retired "Small Script" then punched it with the large Decorative Label Punch, sponging it with perfect plum and popping it up with dimensionals. Concord Crush twill ribbon finishes it off.
Tomorrow, thee will be anew Color Dare. Hope I don't get stumped again!!
