Happy Wednesday everyone and welcome to another week of The Color Dare. This week Riley has chosen a happy springtime combination for us: Pear Pizzazz, Pretty in Pink and Perfect Plum. So soft and pretty!
With colors like these, I just had to go the springtime route even though it is nowhere near spring--not even here in Florida! I cut a Whisper White oval with my Scallop Oval Frame die and stamped the little girl silhouette from Easter Blossoms in Pretty in Pink. so sweet. I love how the oval looks like an Easter egg! Next I ran the Pear Pizzazz card base through the Framed Tulip embossing folder. The pear polka dot DSP is from the level one hostess pack and is matted with Perfect Plum. You might remember from last week's Color Dare post that when I color stumps me, I try to use less of it than the other colors. Perfect Plum has always been a stumper (hi Diane) for me. But here, it tones down the pastels just enough.
I stamped the Perfect Plum strip behind the bow with a row of eggs from Nature Walk. They're mostly hidden but I like that--it makes you want to peek around the bow to see what's behind there.
I made a big bow with Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon and with a piece of Linen Thread tied this little flower button onto the bow. I just trimmed the thread short and tucked it behind the ribbon. Our largest basic pearl fits snugly in the center and because they're self-adhesive it stays in place!
More cherry blossoms from the same set for the inside--stamped in Pear Pizzazz and colored with a Blushing Bride marker (I don't have a PIP marker!). Love this sentiment and stamped in Perfect Plum, it pulls all the challenge colors together!
So there you have it: speckled eggs, cherry blossoms, tulips and a little girl in her Sunday best! All the ingredients for happy springtime wishes! If only that's what it took to make spring, spring!
