SSSC100 Color Dare 93 Valentine

When I got home from work today I checked out the color challenge over at the Color Dare.  My thought process went something like this:  Regal Rose (love it), Pink Pirouette (excellent choice with Regal Rose), Pacific Point (what?!?!?!?).  I have never been a big fan of Pacific Point.  I've used it before and although I admit that it grows on you, my first reaction when I saw this color challenge was "no way!"  Then I scrolled down to see the design team cards and I couldn't help but change my mind.  If you haven't clicked my Color Dare link to check out the amazing cards made with this unusual color combo, I encourage you to do so now!

I decided to make my card with a little help from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

This week is sketch challenge #100!  Congratulations Karen!  What a milestone!  I'm sure it's quite a time committment to produce an interesting sketch challenge week after week and I certainly appreciate her efforts!  I really look forward to checking out the challenge on Sunday morning and hope that I'll have the time to participate.  This week I did!

Here's my Valentine take on the sketch and color challenge:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today! Pin It Now!

This colour combo reminds me of illustrations from the 50s - in a good way! Your card is lovely - the large circle really grounds the other elements in the card.
