Color Dare #178 ~ Glacier, Pixie, Thistle + White Daisy

This week the Design Team at Color My Heart has a very pretty color combo to inspire you! Glacier, Thistle, Pixie and White Daisy is a ver versatile set of colors! I needed to make a birthday card for my granddaughter and this is what I came up with using the color dare as my guide.

I used a blending pen and the ink in the lid of the stamp pads to color the hippo. The tutu, bow, shoes and toenails were colored with markers. It turned out very cute, don't you think?
