Color Dare 98 Birthday

I do so love a clean and simple card. 

When I saw the color challenge this week at the Color Dare, I thought that these were the perfect colors to showcase with a very simple card.  The colors are Perfect Plum, Always Artichoke and a neutral of choice.

For my layout I went to "the binder."  I've mentioned a time or two before that I print out sketch challenges and keep them in a binder for when I need inspiration.  I turn to it often when I'm making a card.  I keep one section with FTL sketches and I find that part especially useful when I'm contemplating a color challenge with three or fewer colors.

So I made this card using the FLT 13 sketch from September 2008.   The Pocket Silhouette stamp set is perfect for it!

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

Oh Jen, your CAS and simple card for the Color Dare is a breath of fresh air. All that white space is so soothing. ADORE your card and I love the tone-on-tone white with piercing around the border. Just perfect! Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Color Dare!
