Color Dare Blossom {95}

Hello, Color Dare fans!  It's Wednesday and that means another color combo from Riley at the Color Dare.  Our colors are so lovely this week that I couldn't wait to share them with you: Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight and Basic Black.  I added Whisper White as another neutral to make this cheerful birthday card:
You Like?  I am pleased with the results and it will make the perfect birthday card for my husband's grandmother who turns 101--yes, one hundred and one(!)--on Saturday.  Nothing very tricky about this one so I'll keep it short and let the pictures do the talking:
A Daffodil Delight center stamped and punched with a 1" circle punch and accented with a black jewel brad from my stash (i.e. contraband)!
Daffodil Delight 1 1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon given the scrunchy treatment--love this ribbon!
The Framed Tulips embossing folder with some adhesive Black basic jewels [retired from holiday mini].

So what do you think?  I would love to hear from you.  I hope you can make time in your stamp space this week to play along with these yummy colors.  Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team for more fabulous inspiration.  Then come on back to the Color Dare blog and link up your creation so we can come visit you!  Enjoy the rest of your week, my friends!

    Nance this is beautiful. Love the blue flower and yellow center. Really draws one's eye to the ribbon accent. Your black bling is striking against the white background. Just beautiful.
    I will "finally" get my box with all these goodie tomorrow.... hopefully the UPS will plow through this snow storm. HUGS

    Wow! This is so bold and beautiful! You have me wishing I had ordered that embossing folder, too. I love the way it frames your card without competing with the beautiful flower. Your hubby's grandmother will surely love it!

    Beautiful card, Nance. You've done a masterful job with the wide ribbon - again. It looks great rippled. I also love the flower - I should be getting that punch and stamp set this week - it sort of scares me though. Hope I can make it work!
    I'm sure your husband's grandmother will love the card!

    Nance, this set was already added to my order for tomorrow but now...I will be stalking the UPS guy to get it in my hands! Stunning mix of colors and the ribbon and bling just complete the awesome-ness! I love everything about your beautiful creation. Can't wait to play along wth ya'll this week...finally! :) Have a happy day today!
