Color Dare # 91: Ariana Paper Pack

Welcome to the color dare for this week: Ariana. The Color My Heart challenge is to use the colors from the Arians paper pack: Ariana Coral, Ariana Green, Ariana Grey, Crystal Blue, Outdoor Denim and Daisy White. The B & T paper I used in the background has all those colors! There are some other great patterns in the pack so be sure to check it out. 

This is actually Sketch #132 from the Freshly Made Sketches site. I didn't get this finished in time to enter the challenge, but I love the way it turned out. Its a very simple design that lets the elements all work really well together. The White Daisy cardstock is dry embossed with our stripe folder. That gives a lot of great texture to the background of the rose. The rose is from the Ariana Compliments pack. Its a printed Dimensional Element and looks even better in real life! The message is from the Give a Lift stamp set. By the way, this is a 7" x 5" side fold card.

  1. Michelle, I love how you rounded those top corners on the embossed panel--perfect for that one. Now I want to get out my folders, lol! :)
