Color Dare - Surf's Up Colors

Welcome to the Surf's Up Color Dare! The colors are Surf's Up Teal, Surf's Up Gold, Crystal Blue, Sorbet (Ponderosa Pine optional). The challenge was to use ALL the colors!

I was invited to be a Guest Designer this week and here is my creation. It's a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" top fold card. The papers are from the Surf's Up paper pack of course, and I did use Ponderosa Pine as well.

The stamp sets are Happy Thoughts for the flower and 4 My Friend for the message. Since adding neutrals is always an option with the Color Dare I added some sparkle with Bronze Glitter Paper. Some Blue & Green Sparkle gems add just the right touch of bling, too! By the way, the design is based on a card sketch created by Fabulously Artsy Tresa Black!
