Fresh Air Card ~ Color Dare 292

Black and White are free colors
Open through May 24th

How's this for an for a nice card sentiment! Just reading it makes me want to slow down and relax a bit. The card is very easy to make because it starts with a pattern from our Make It from Your Heart how-to book. I adjusted the size of the top layers to fit the stamp I wanted to use but the rest is from the pattern.  I also sponged a bit on the background to soften the white and incorporate the Linen color. The sparkles start out clear but I used a ShinHan marker to color coordinate it to the Color Dare.

  1. Great card, Michelle! I like how you added the canary accents and linen sponging on the white background and colored the sparkles to coordinate.

    1. Thanks, Susan. This isn't my typical style so it's nice to work outside the box.
