Color Dare & Sketch

So, it's been TOO long since I've gotten the chance to stamp, but I have been a little under the weather and then I've just been plain busy! I finally got a chance to make a card this morning, WOO HOO!

I made this card for this week's Color Dare challenge to use Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi, & Early Espresso. I think this is the first time I've used the new color, Marina Mist. It's a lovely shade of blue and I know I will be using it more!

This is also for this week's sketch challenge on Splitcoast Stampers.

I don't have any current designer paper that has Wild Wasabi in it, so I had to dig through my stash and I found this scrap from the retired Afternoon Tea designer paper. It was always one of my favorites and I'm sad to say that I have very little of it left!

I used the new hostess set, Because I Care (#120118) on this card. You can earn this set for FREE by placing an order of $150 or more in my online Stampin' Up Store!
