I often look at the Color Dare and Mojo Monday blogs and hope to make a card to post, but it never happens. However, I was really inspired by the round card sketch. The Color Dare combination seemed a bit challenging until I saw some of the beautiful completed cards so I decided to try to combine the challenges. The colors are Ruby, Gypsy, Honey, Pear and Colonial White.
The card is made using Art Philosophy. It is on page 41 of the booklet cut at 5" (it will fit in a 5x7 envelope). The Gypsy flowers are on page 48 and cut at 1/2" and 1 1/4". The Ruby flower is on page 50 and was cut at 3/4". The leaves are on page 59 and are cut at 3/4" and 1/2" in Pear CS. The flower centers are punched from Honey Cardstock. The stamp is from S1603 which was the March SOM called Sunshine Birdies. The card center is a Background and Texture paper from X7207B Penelope paper pack. It makes the card look like a big sunflower. I used Z3087 Green Shimmer Trim as an embellishment to add some sparkle.
On a side note...
I was caught in a rainstorm on my way home from the polls. As the rain began to let up, I saw this beautiful rainbow. So of course I had to pull over to take a picture. The photo does not do it justice - in fact it was a double rainbow! Not sure if the second one is just a reflection of the first rainbow or not but it was very lovely.
