The Color Dare 100 - I dare ya!

In looking to improve this blog and inspire my loyal readers, I've been working to adjust the mix of information shared. If you have visited before, you may have noticed that I enjoy sketches as a creative launch pad. I was leaning a little too heavily on those and, although I will definitely continue to share more, it's time to add something else to the mix.

Another fun way to be creatively inspired is with COLOR.  I'm thrilled to have been chosen to participate this season on The Color Dare Design Team. Each Wednesday, the team will present you with a color combination we just dare ya to try!

This week, our challenge colors are:

Keep in mind that you can also use other neutrals along with the chosen colors; for example, my sample card also includes Whisper White (card stock) and Early Espresso (ink).

Thanks for stopping by! To see more ideas based on these colors, be sure to visit The Color Dare site where the entire team's projects are shared. In the future, you will also be able to visit individual team members by using the links provided in my side bar. *If you are reading this post in a reader, click the title to access the blog and see what you've been missing, lol*
