Color Dare #195 ~ Thistle, Pear, Crystal Blue, Lagoon plus White

Happy Friday! One of the reasons I love Friday is because it's time for a new Color My Heart color dare! This week we bring you a very pretty color combo: Thistle, Pear, Crystal Blue, Lagoon (my favorite color) with White Daisy! Nice clean and bright colors to create with!

I saw this idea on Pinterest and was so inspired I just had to create one of my own! The color dare had the perfect colors for this and here it is! I love the simplicity of the design. The embellishments along the bottom are fun way to ground the flowers so they don't look like they're floating in the air!

The stamp set I used is special for the month of May! It's called Happy Times and will only be available from May 1-31st! See the photo below for all the pretty images and great sentiments!

Once I completed this card I got to thinking about how pretty it could look in other colors! I've included a couple more photos below to show other colors and ways to finish the card!

Here the colors are (L to R) Crystal Blue, Peacock, Pacifica, Glacier, Fern
Embellishments: Silver Sequins Assortment, Blue Dots, Peacock Fundamental Assortment.

Colors (L to R): Pear, Cotton Candy, Thistle, Canary, Fern
Embellishments: Gold Sequins, Flamingo Dots, Green Triangles
Edge Distresser

All products are Close to My Heart:
--Happy Times special
--White Cards and Envelopes Value Pack
--White Daisy Cardstock
--Fundamental Assortment

If you need a consultant I'd love to help you out!


Now it's time for you to get busy and join the fun! If you don't have the exact colors of the color dare just use something close! Details on how to join are in the sidebar of the Color My Heart home page. While there, check out what the Design Team has created to inspire you!
