Triple Challenge Card!

I love it when I can multi task! This card fits the bill because I can use it in not one but THREE challenges! Here we go......

Color Dare Challenge: use these colors or something as close as possible to create a paper craft.

Double Trouble - Challenge #3: Thing 1 challenges you to use the colors above. Thing 2 double dares you to link up to Color Dare 297. Thing 3 challenges you to use string things like well....string, ribbon twine, hemp, etc. 

Heart 2 Heart Challenge: invites you to be a "copycat" but recreating a project from the Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog. 

So here is my card.........ta da!
I recreated the card in the lower right of page 7. I just love this pattern and had fun making it my own. As you can see I used the color dare colors to create the flowers/leaves. I also love the touch of using vellum behind the focal layer. To distress the edge of the focal layer I used an edge distressed and then rubbed in gently on the ink pad. I also used the piercing tool to poke little holes around the edge.
