Color Dare #150 ~ Sunset, Sweet Leaf + Slate & White Daisy

Welcome to a new color dare from Color My Heart. Each Friday morning we go live with a new color challenge. You can make anything you want, you just need to use only the specified colors. If you don't have the exact colors you can substitute something close. It's A LOT of fun!

This week our colors are Sunset, Sweet Leaf + Slate and White Daisy. I wanted to make a 3D item this week and dove into my Close To My Heart Cricut booklets. I decided on this cute and tropical looking gift box. It's about 3" tall and perfect for some little goodies.

For the tag I used Tagged With Love which is a Hostess Set. BUT, during the month of July only, you can receive a Hostess Set for only $5 with when you buy $25 in stamps! OR you can chose the July Stamp of the Month instead of a Hostess Set!The qualifying Hostess Sets are in the Annual Inspirations or Seasonal 2 books. All of the Hostess Sets will be retiring Aug, 31st. If you have your eye on any of them NOW is the time to get in on this deal!

The gift box was cut from the Artiste Cartridge. The purple images in the lower right are the ones for this gift box.

The tag was cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge. The image in the lower left is for this tag.
