hey there Color Dare Challenge!

While shopping this weekend I saw on the cover of some magazine a card that caught my eye.  I can't remember the name of the magazine and didn't even have time to pick it up.  I was checking out and my son had already called asking when I was coming home!  Built in babysitters aren't always the best!  Anyway, it is time for another Color Dare Challenge and thought I would give it a try.  Here is the challenge:

CD103:  Very Tempting Pears
Pear Pizzazz
Tempting Turquoise
Very Vanilla
Chocolate Chip

Be sure and head over to The Color Dare blog and link up your creation!  And see others work!

Here is a what I came up with the inspiration:
Flower petals were cut from Cricut Essentials at 2".
This cartridge is one that came on the Anniversary Edition of the Cricut Expression.

Card Base: SU Very Vanilla 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Other Cardstock / Paper:  Tempting Tourquoise, Stampin Up Designer Paper
Ink: Tempting Tourquoise, Chocolate Chip
Stamps:   PTI Fillable Frames #6 & Bitty Background Blocks
Accessories:  Cricut Cricut Essentials and Cricut Expression 2, Cuttlebug & Checkerboard and Textile embossing folder

Thanks so much for visiting me while I am
Hiding in My Craft Room!
