Color Dare #29 ~ Blush & Cranberry

I love doing the Color Dare challenges, but lately I keep forgetting to look at the challenge before it's too late.  This week, I remembered!!!

Here's my take on the Blush and Cranberry Challenge.

For this card I used the following:
Whoos' your Valentine (December/January Special)
Cranberry and Blush Cardstock
Black and Gray Glitter Paper (lightest gray)
White Bulk card base
Cranberry Pigment Ink
Blush Exclusive Ink
Colonial White Rosette Ribbon
Bitty Silver Brad
Bitty sparkles
Foam Tape

It's hard to tell from the picture, but the "let's be friends" is curled.  The card layout was inspired by the "For Always" Workshop on the Go Cardmaking Kit.

Wait, I think this one is even better, I mounted it on a Cranberry Card base 6 x 4-3/4" now


  1. Lovely card, Karen! I love the owls and the 4 different panels--a very pleasing design1 Thank you for playing along with us at Color My Heart Color Dare this week--hope you'll join us again soon!

  2. What a fun card! Love the layout and your flower embellies. And those owls are adorable. Thanks for joining us at the Color My Heart challenge.


  3. I just love the owls. This is a wonderful card that captures the color dare so well. Thanks for joining us this week.

  4. I love that layout. I'm not a big owl fan (pease don't tell anyone, I'm in the minority over that one), but I will certainly be adapting this clever idea. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us over at Color My Heart!

  5. Love your combination of soft (the rosette ribbon) with glitter with graphic! I'd want to be friends with those little owls... Great job on the challenge at Color My Heart this week.

  6. Karen, I love how you used different kinds of paper for the background...and those alternating rounded corners are fabulous! I really like the dimension that the curled banner gives. Thanks so much for playing along with us for Color My Heart's Color Dare! :)

  7. Karen, I really like your card! Especially how each section has a different pattern. And I love that rosette ribbon. It's so pretty! Thanks for joining in this week at Color My Heart!
