Color Dare 'Friends' Color Challenge card

I'm a firm believer that any and every color looks AMAZING with Baja Breeze! hehehe! Here's another fabulous color challenge from the Color Dare to use: Ruby Red, Baja Breeze, and Whisper White!
Paired with a superb card sketch challenge from the Sweet Stop - I really liked how this card turned out! Plus the Vintage Vogue stamp set is definitely a favorite of mine as well! This set is on page 26 of the Occasions Mini Catalog. It comes in either the Wood Mount (117690) OR the Clear Mount (118598) and has a coordinating Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel (117693).
Hint: If you do purchase the Clear Mount set, here are my block size recommendations: Block 'A' (118487), Block 'C' (118486), Block 'G' (118489), and Block 'H' (118490). If you're interested in switching over to the Clear Mount sets - I do suggest taking the plunge and purchasing the Block Bundle (118491) for $69.95 and saving 10%. Then you'll never need to purchase them individually since you'll have them all! I store mine in their original packaging (just to protect them) in a clear plastic storage bin!
Stampin' Essentials Tips:
  • My card base is Ruby Red card stock, which I ran through my Big Shot with the Finial Press Emossing Folder! Then I layered some Urban Garden DSP (Retired) on top using Stampin' Dimensionals for some depth!
  • I cut a 2" circle of Whisper White card stock and a 2-1/4" circle of Ruby Red card stock using my Circle Scissor Plus.
  • On the 2" circle, I stamped the 'F' mongram stamp first in Baja Breeze ink, then in Ruby Red ink. Cut out the 'F' and layered on top of the Baja Breeze 'F' using Stampin' Dimensionals!
  • Then I stamped the flowers - the larger one in Ruby Red and the smaller in Baja Breeze. Cut out using my Stampin' Snips and layered on top of each other!
  • To add some BLING I used the Fire Rhinestone brads! Viola!
