Color Dare #214 ~ Thistle, Pear, Black and White Daisy

Guess what day it is? It's Friday and that means a new
Color My Heart color dare!
This week the colors are Thistle, Pear, Black and White. Pear was recently retired so instead I used the new color Willow.

This was a quick and easy card to make. I used the Brushstroke stamp set to make the flowers. The big circle image was too big for the flowers I wanted so I used a sponge dauber and sponged the ink onto the stamp making a smaller image. The flower stem is one of the arrows. Take a look at the banners under the flower layer. I used White Shimmer Trim and daubed ink onto it! FUN! There are little Bitty Sparkles on the flower centers. The white of the flower center is actually White Shimmer Trim but it's hard to see in the photo. The Bitty Sparkles were colored with a marker to match the flowers.
