Color Dare!


My friend Riley has recently started hosting a Color Dare...when she put forth a call for designers I was really hoping to make her team. A weekly color challenge that I could know about in advance seemed like a great fit for me...I've wanted to begin to post a few cards on my other blog, The Daily Dare, and her challenge is just perfect! I am so delighted to be serving on Riley's team along with two very talented designers, Stephanie Castro and Mandy Sarver. Riley is a fabulous stamper in her own right and I know the four of us are gonna have a great time together!

For our first challenge, the colors are Bordering Blue, Brilliant Blue, Gable Green, Sahara Sand, and Close to Cocoa. I knew immediately that I would use SU's set A Friend for All Seasons. It is one of my recent favorites. I also used Pocket Silhouettes to add some plants and flowers to the base of the tree trunk. These bright, springy colors were fun to work with! Head over to Riley's blog to see what she, Stephanie and Mandy came up with!
