Colour Dare #96

Here is my take on this week's Colour Dare #96 challenge. The colours to use were Bashful Blue, Peach Parfait and Garden Green - all Stampin' Up! colours as they always are.

I have seen these cards with little calendars on them and thought they were a great idea as you can put a ring around the recipient's birth date and that makes it that little more personal.

The stamps come from a set called Sweet Summer in the current Sale-a-bration catalogue. I have stamped and coloured the flower heads, then cut them out and spritzed them with Smooch Spritz before placing them with Dimensionals. I dyed the little piece of ribbon with SU Peach Parfait.

Stamps: SU Sweet Summer, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card: Garden Green, Peach Parfait, Whisper White and Bashful Blue, In colours designer series paper and retired SU paper
Ink: Bashful Blue, Garden Green and Peach Parfait
Other: SU oval scallop and window punch, smooch spritz, Nestabilities dies, silk ribbon

What a sweet idea! Love your cute stamp too- I just could not decide between this and "Bliss"- ended up ordering bliss as I don't have much like it in my collection- but I do like this one too!
