Color Dare #173 ~ Peacock & Pear

I LOVE this color dare! Color My Heart really has a fun combination this week! Blues and greens are my favorite so this was right up my alley!

Actually, I dreamed about this card and created it the next day! Do you ever do that? I've done that many different time. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't. This one did!

I sponged the Pear ink in the background making it darker in the corners and lighter where the flowers would be stamped. I stamped the flowers in 1st and 2nd generation to get the two-tone effect. I trimmed off 1/4" of the bottom front of the card and put some Teal Shimmer Trim on the inside.
