Color Dare #88: Sunset, Smoothie, Lagoon, Sweet Leaf, Buttercup

Hello and welcome to our weekly color dare from Color My Heart. Each Friday we post a set of colors to get you started. After that it's up to you and your creative muse!

This set of colors made me think of Spring. Spring makes me think of flowers. Here is what I came up with! This is a 7" x 5" side fold card. I've random stamped for the background and added some Washi Tape around the edges.

The flower was created with the Cricut Artiste cartridge. I cut flowers in each color but varied the size. After that I dry embossed the flowers with the Dots embossing folder. The edges are inked for a bit of definition. Glue Dots are a good choice for adhering the flowers together. The center of the flower is from the Babycakes Assortment. Lagoon Zipper Lace gives a nice touch to the bottom of the flower layer. Stamp your message in a contrasting color. Here I've used the Joyful Birthday set in Sunset.
