All Occasion Card - Color Dare #297

This is my Design Team card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #297, striking color combination for sure.  Quite some time ago I bought Gina K's "Floral" stencil and thought this would be a great CAS card.  However, when sponging the colors I was a little careless in sponging and stamping the paint splatters on my card base,  so I did a second stencil sponging on just the leaves.  

After analyzing, and not wanting to risk another careless stamping I decided to fussy-cut both the flowers from the one stencil and the leaves from the other.  Then I took a card base and stamped paint splatters with the three colors and distressed with nutmeg and sorbet, adhered the leaves directly to the paint splattered background, adhered the flowers with thin foam paper and added some Wink of Stella on the Flower.  Once again a CAS card turned into a layered card... but I was happy with it.  

Please stop by and view the DT's inspiration for this challenge. Please join us...we would love to see the projects you create. This Color Dare Challenge will be open for (2) weeks AND you still have time to enter in our previous Color Dare #296 Click Here.  

On the inside of the card along the border stamped more of the paint splatters.

Beautiful card! I love the splatters in the background and on the inside. I think the fussy cut flowers and leaves really make them pop.

Love the flowers and leaves not being splattered - they are so clean against the background and they stand out perfectly. That CAS card can wait yet again... This one is gorgeous.
