Color Dare #220 ~ Pomegranate, Saffron, Poppy, New England Ivy with Colonial White

It's Friday so you know what that means!
Time for a new Color My Heart color dare!
This week the challenge is to use Pomegranate, Saffron, Poppy, New England Ivy with Colonial White. If you don't have those exact colors just use something close....but don't add any new colors to the mix! Details are in the sidebar of our home page.

These colors made me think of Fall. I love Fall! Unfortunately, the trees didn't become their vibrant best this year. So I had to create the bright Fall colors in my project. First I made a mask with a rectangular opening in the middle. I sponged the colors in the opening. The best way to get a nice crisp edge is to sponge from the mask into the opening. Then I stamped the leaves along on edge and a sentiment at the bottom. Very clean and simple not to mention easy peasy!
