Dream Garden for The Color Dare {84}

Hello Color Dare fans!  It's time for another color challenge and here's what Riley has for us:
Color Dare 83
Soft Suede
Pear Pizzazz
Night of Navy
And here is what I've created for you:

The stamp-a-ma-jig made easy work of the center panel.  I started with a piece of Naturals Ivory cardstock (it's okay to add a neutral) and stamped the beautiful panel from Dream Garden in all 3 challenge colors.  I left a little bit of ivory cardstock at the bottom so I could wrap it with the scrunchy ribbon technique in Night of Navy taffeta ribbon.  

I made a flower embellishment from Night of Navy cardstock and layered two flowers from the Flower Fusion sizzlit.  The card base looked too plain to me so I chose another Asian-themed stamp set, Eastern Blossoms,  and stamped the cherry blossoms in Soft Suede as a frame.    
When I was finished, I realized that I wasn't finished--there was no sentiment!  I stamped it on the side to see what it would look like and I really like the effect.  What do you think?

And I couldn't ignore the the crane was inked up again in Pear Pizzazz and a sentiment from Sincere Salutations stamped in Night of Navy.

Sorry to make this a quick post tonight...please let me know if you have any questions or comments--love to hear from you.  Please be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team.  I'm sure you will find some fabulous inspiration on their blogs:

Nance this looks fabulous in those colors. Love the Night of Navy ribbon, so rich, and the apple blossom background fits perfectly. Beautiful job.

Nance, another beautiful card, this is such a pretty stamp set and you did it justice again! Great idea with the sentiment "sideways" nice change, pretty ribbon, the flower looks gorgeous in Night of Navy color too doesn't it!
Like your Asian touch of the stones in the photo as well, perfect!

Such beautiful stamping on this one, Nance! Gorgeous, rich colors this week, too. I love the sentiment turned on its side, it is subtle but effective and doesn't take away from the lovely stamped images. Beautifully done!
