Color Dare for Mom

Hi Stamping Friends!

Do you ever have a card idea in your head and then when you make it, it doesn't turn out at all like you had planned?  Well that's what happened with this card.  I've been thinking about it all week, but when I finally sat down to make it, I was totally disappointed in how it turned out.  I'm sure it didn't have anything to do with the fact that I had very little time to make it and take a pic of it.  Oh well!  My MIL will still appreciate it!

Can you believe that I've had Lovely Letters for about a year and never used them?!  I received them last year as part of my Sale-A-Bration rewards.  I kinda kept forgetting that I had them!  The card base is Tempting Turquoise, layered with Lovely Lilac, and Shades of Spring DSP.  "Mom" is stamped in Pale Plum.  The colors are from the THE COLOR DARE challenge blog.  This is CD63.  The sketch is from the PALS PAPER ARTS challenge blog.  This is challenge PPS38.

I'm still considering starting my own challenge blog.  It would be a weekly inspiration challenge.  I was really excited to be contacted by Candace Lawlor who thought it was a great idea and said she would help me host the challenge.  We've been emailing back and forth and are trying to get it up and running soon.  So if you are a challenge lover/junkie/addict (like I am!)... stay tuned!  I'll keep you updated about what's going on.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

This happens to me all the time...what's in my head does NOT transfer to paper! But this is lovely! I have wanted this alphabet for two years...the first year was before the stamps were diecut, and Mary Fish told me to I didn't have to cut them out! Smart lady! I still haven't gotten them though....and I still want them! Maybe it will be my SAB redemption! It love these colors---she'll love it too!

Lovely colors. Beautiful card. I wanted to participate in that Color Dare but didn't have 2 of those colors.
Great job with this!

It's 2014 and I was checking out pinterest and found this lovely card. Making loads of Mom's day cards to sell, so looking for ideas. I have the morning post letters and they will do fine. Thanks again and those wonderful ideas that transform to something else on paper are usually the best. Thanks again
