Peaceful Color Dare {89}

Hi everyone!  I promise I will at least try to put this stamp set down...soon.  It's so pretty, I can't help myself!  I used it again for this week's challenge at the Color Dare: Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry & Very Vanilla. I don't have any Pink Pirouette so I substituted Blushing Bride--a very similar but deeper shade of pink.  These colors are so soft and serene, I thought they were perfectly matched for the dove and sentiment from Peaceful Season:
If this card looks familiar you might have seen a very similar layout on my card from last week's Color Dare.  This time I used the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder on Very Vanilla and three strips of the Scalloped Ribbon Border punch in the challenge colors.  Just like last week's card, I wet embossed the edges but this time with Iridescent Ice stamping emboss powder for a softer look:
I stamped the globe a second time in Baja Breeze, punched it out with a 3/4" circle punch and popped it up on a dimensional adding a bow of silver elastic cord attached with a glue dot.  Just the finishing touch!
I hope you find time to play along with the Color Dare this week--these colors are so pretty together and could be used for any kind of card...remember Valentines Day is just around the corner!  ;-)

Be sure to hop on over to the rest of the design team where you're sure to find loads of inspiration:
