Color Dare 100...

I am so excited to tell you all that I have been chosen to serve on Color Dare's design team!!! So each week you will see a color challenge from me and I hope you will play along too!


Our colors this week for CD100 are: Rose Red, Baja Breeze and Sahara Sand. I loved this color combo that Riley came up with!


And here is my card! This is actually the card I gave my Mother-in-Law for Mother's Day! You are always welcome to add in neutrals with our color combos!


I started this card with a Sahara Sand base and inked the edges with a little Chocolate Chip ink and a sponge. Then I roughed up the edges of a Whisper White piece of cardstock and added a Baja Breeze piece on top, inked with Chocolate Chip ink. Love this effect!


The piece of DSP came from Basic Gray and was perfect because it had Rose Red little swirls on it! I also inked all 4 edges of this piece of paper.


The stamped sentiment came from Papertrey Ink's stamp set: Signature Greetings. Love this set!



I then added 5 buttons (all but one are from Stampin Up...the other is from Papertrey Ink). I love to lace my buttons with Stampin Up's new Baker's Twine! I used the plain white on this card and laced all of the buttons a little differently.



Here is a up-close picture of the distressing and inking of the edges.


I hope you enjoy my card and I hope you go check out the creations of the rest of the new design team. Oh and don't forget to play along with us! You have until the end of the day on Monday to enter your card! Good Luck!
