Bunches of Love card ~ Color Dare 310

This is a special Color Dare Challenge because our winner from Color Dare 300, Vickie O'Dell, picked the colors! That was one of the perks from being our Diamond Winner of #300. So here we go....

I love this color combination! The Peacock and Ruby are so rich with color and the Kraft makes a nice accent to highlight with. Great choice, Vickie! We reference CTMH colors but you can use any product you like. Just make sure to match the colors of the challenge as close  as possible. Neutral colors plus black and white are free to use, too.

This card is pretty straight forward. It's a side fold standard size card (5.5" x 4.25"). I stamped the images and used the gold shimmer brush on each flower. The strips along the bottom is gold foil but kind of looks like craft. It's hard to photo the shiny stuff. LOL I stamped the flowers using the Stamp and Roll technique. First ink the stamp then stamp on scrap paper. Go back and roll the edges of the same stamp in ink again. You get a two tone image this way.
