Naki and Nina's Double Dare Challenge 9

Friday, October 12, 2012

Welcome to another Naki and Nina's Double Dare Challenge!

Use your "Never-Go-To" colors
(I know you too ignore some of the Stampin' Up! colors...!)

Make a square card

And once again, I am also playing along with Freshly Made Sketches! I think I am hooked to this challenge...:-) By the way, my card from last week's Double Dare Challenge/Freshly Made Sketches was chosen as a perfect princess at Freshly Made Sketches:-) 

The ornament was heat embossed with the Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder on the Cherry Cobble Card Stock, then punched out with the Ornament Punch. Easy breezy! Some pearls were added instead of a string. I got this idea from my fellow pal, Ann Schach's Halloween spider:-) 

So these are some of my "never-go-to" colors:
Cherry Cobbler 
Garden Green
Wild Wasabi
Sahara Sand
I don't know why I never use these colors... I really loved using them for this card!

A custom made envelop for this 5" x 5" card. I added a little ornament using the Merry Minis Punch Pack on the envelope for "a little something" :-)
