Color Dare #134 ~ Cotton Candy, Olive & Lagoon + Black and White Daisy

Color My Heart color dares are a fun and easy way to get the creative ideas flowing. The colors are selected for you, so that's one big decision out of the way! After that all you need to do is choose the way you want to use those colors! Anything goes at this, layouts,'s up to you!

This was a quick and easy card that also has something special added to it. The stamp set is called You're the Bomb and it's our current Operation Smile stamp set. Operation Smile is a wonderful organization that provides surgical procedures to correct facial deformities in children. Close To My Heart will donate $3 of the proceeds to Operation Smile! You can change the life of a child with just one stamp set! You're the Bomb is only available until March 31, 2015 so order yours now!

On the card I stamped second generation images for behind the words. This image is from the Brushstrokes set. After popping the circles with 3D Foam, I wrapped some Pixie Extra Thick Twine around it and tied it to look a bit like a tassel. I added some bling to act like bullet points for the words and the card was done!
