Care Dare #102

Sorry this post is later than normal everyone! See, I live in Kansas and it's the height of tornado season and it's been a crazy few days around here! I was going to post this morning but as soon as we got home from a few errands, the sirens were going off and we had to take cover.



Anyway, the excitement is over for the moment SO...here's my card for this week's Color Dare challenge!



The colors this week are: Concord Crush, So Saffron and a Neutral of your choice. I didn't think I would like this color combo but I think it's one of my favorites now! Check out my card:



I created this card for my Mom's birthday. We had a little celebration over the weekend. Hope you had a great celebration mom!


One of my favorites parts of this card is the little flower buttons that I put on top of the Concord Crush buttons. And of course the great Baker's Twine that I used to lace the buttons with!



The "Great Friend" Stampin Up stamp set is still one of my favorites! I just love that butterfly and I love the font that is in it as well! I stamped the butterfly in Concord Crush ink on Whisper White cardstock and the added a little glitter to the white parts. Can you see it?


Well I hope you all will play along with us this week! Please submit your creations to the Color Dare website before Tuesday of next week!



Forgot to mention too that I got this sketch from Clean & Simple's sketch #141! Check it out here!

So pretty, Kim! LOVE those buttons, too! We were in the basement for an hour, too! And now, watching all the pictures pour in, from the damage that nearly missed us, just blows me away! Crossing my fingers and praying things settle down, and the remainder of the day is uneventful.
