Color Dare #261 ~ Nutmeg, Almond, Toffee + Pick your own Yellow, White with optional Gold

We have a challenging group of colors for this color dare! Our new browns are beautiful and I'm not usually a fan of brown! They are very rich and I look forward to working with them often!

I made this cute card using the Operation Smile stamp set: Punny Pals. It's SO cute and has so many funny sentiments to go with the images! But the best part is that when you purchase this stamp set $7.00 will be donated to Operation Smile. Operation Smile is a non-profit organization that provides surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates for children around the world.

I stamped the monkey with Nutmeg ink and lightly colored with a water brush and the ink pads. The circle was done with Thin Cuts and a few embellishments later and it was finished!
