Friday's Daring Cardmakers - on a Tuesday

OK so I'm really rubbish at this blogging lark just now, two weeks running I'm late with my Daring Cardmakers card tut tut, must try harder....
This year the first Dare each month is a Colour Combo Challenge and our September hostess is Lythan who is loving living at the seaside and has chosen to draw the colours from one of her hubby's photos taken on a family walk along the beach.
Here's the card I made

Tools and Materials:
Mix of several MME sets, Fancy Pants "Country Boutique" and 
some Prima papers, all 6x6,
Bazzill card (greens, brown, black)
House and tree shaped buttons
Craft Robo to cut the hot air balloons and the frame

Here is Lythan's lovely photo and the colour palette drawn from it

Everyone loved the colours, but we all agreed it wasn't so easy to find the "right" papers in any one collection - so had you been able to do a secret spying tour of our desks last week, you'd have seen us all hunting through our paper and other stash searching out the stuff we needed - all good fun, though and you do unearth forgotten gems when this sort of thing happens!
Please visit the Daring Cardmakers Blog to see all the lovely cards the design team came up with this week.

Thanks for visiting
