Jenn's Dirty Dare Challenge

This was for Jenn Balcer's Dirty Dare Challenge on Saturday, to make a card using a cheerful color combination. The more I'm challenged to use the Bold Bright color family, the more I like them. I know I say this every time I use orange, but I NEVER use Only Orange. My oranges are in the Earth Elements family. More muted. Every time I see a bold, bright card that someone made, I LOVE it. I just don't know why I stay away from the Bold Brights. Anyway, this layout was just very simple. I used my Cuttlebug Swirls folder on the base of the card and added some paper piercing on the green layer. The sentiment is by A Muse. Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Garden Whimsy, sentiment from A Muse; Paper- Only Orange, Real Red, Wild Asparagus green, Whisper White; Ink- Only Orange, Real Red, Green Galore, Old Olive, Basic Black; Accessories- paper piercer, ribbon from Doodliedoo, Cuttlebug Swirls folder, Making Memories brads.
