Color Dare #192 ~ Fern, Canary, Cotton Candy, Glacier, White Daisy with Gold

Hello and welcome to a special color dare from Color My Heart
This week we are featuring colors from the Happy Times paper pack that is the May Special. The colors in the ink pad photo are just suggested colors this week. A few of the colors in the paper pack are not official CTMH colors, so we'll be using colors that are close.

NOTE----you do not have to use the Happy Times papers or stamp set to join the color dare this week! The papers are stamp set are just an inspiration. 

The colors listed on the Zip Border of the papers are: Canary, Fern, Pink, Magenta, Mint and White Daisy. For the Pink color I used Smoothie 2nd generation and for Magenta I used Pomegranate. I also used Sunset on the circle card to bring in the orange of the paper design.

There is also a stamp set called Happy Times to go with the paper pack. The paper pack is $14.95 or FREE with a $60 USD purchase. The matching stamp set is $17.95. Both of these products are available only from May 1-31, 2016.
***Anyone who orders the Happy Times paper pack and stamp set.... 
 I will email the directions for the Happy Times Card Workshop (12-24 cards) and Happy Times 6-Page Scrapbook Kit.

  1. Great cards! Love how you stamped the flower images on the second card and layered your flower image on the first card.

  2. Love the designs of both Happy Times. I always enjoy looking at your cards.

  3. Fabulous cards, Michelle! I'm pinning them both so I can scraplift them at some later time. The second one is so different with the flowers seen in little "windows". Thanks for inspiring me today!

  4. Both cards look wonderful, Michelle! Thanks for sharing your alternative for the non-CTMH colors!
