Color Dare #19 and Try Stamping on Tuesday #93

The Color My Heart Color Dare #19 has been extended for a week due to the Thanksgiving holiday which gave me a chance to participate.  The colors are from Close To My Heart--Hollyhock, Cranberry and Sweet Leaf.  I followed the sketch from Try Stamping on Tuesday #93.  The swing card was cut using the Artiste cricut cartridge at 5.5" from page 52 (Accent 3 Shift).  I started with White Daisy cardstock as my base and then added the Sweet Leaf patterned paper from the retired Miracle paper packet. The top part of the card was texturized using a wadded up piece of plastic wrap and Hollyhock ink--a faux marbling technique I used to use almost 20 years ago!  The rose stamp is from Card Word Puzzle and the inside greeting is from Card Chatter--Birthday.  I used Cranberry Ink over Hollyhock CS to stamp the images.

Have you ever nearly finished a project and then smudged it up? (look at the right side of card) This is very frustrating for a Virgo like me!  How could I fix it?

I used 2 ribbon pieces instead of 1 so I could cover it up. The stripes were retired ribbons from Close To My Heart--White Daisy and Cranberry and the ribbon is red twine (unknown source).  Here is the completed inside of the card:

Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog.  Please consider sharing your artwork on these 2 fabulous blogs.  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
