Colour Dare 246 - Birthday Roses

The colour combination this week at Colour Dare is one that I found a little difficult - but that may be just me. The darker neutrals are not normally my style so I chose to use them as my base colours and focus on the brighter colours for the rest of the card. I have never been a fan of Smoothie and decided to keep it to a bare minimum by simply adding small embellishments in that colour... it's there but not a focal colour, for sure. 

The roses are from a new Altenew stamp that I picked up and I love it! The roses are paired with a CTMH stamp for the sentiment.

Another amazing card Alyson. I love how you cut the paper on the right side, it makes it look like a wicker basket, and what is more cheerful and uplifting than a summer basket of flowers? Have a wonderful day!

The basket weave paper makes a great border and love the random stamping of your flowers. CAS and very striking.
