Color Dare #88


Happy Wednesday - Color Dare Day!!!

Today's colors are Old Olive, Riding Hood Red and any Neutral - I picked Basic Black and Vanilla because of the DSP I used. I know that this color combo works perfectly for Christmas - but I thought outside the box instead.....

For the tiny little black pearls on the scalloped edge I took our White Pearls and attacked them with a black sharpie pen.....

Whether you work these colors into a Christmas card or an "outside the box" card - don't forget to share your creation at The Color Dare Challenge Blog - and when you post your creations on a public gallery use CD88 as your tag. And now, here are the links to the other fantastic members of this Design Team so you can take a peak at what they've created this week.....

The basic black is a nice unexpected twist with this challenge!
