Color Dare #217 ~ Sweet Leaf, Sunset, Black and White Daisy

Welcome to our current Color My Heart color dare. This week we challenge you with the colors Sweet Leaf, Sunset (retired), Black and White Daisy. Since I no longer had Sunset I substituted our new color Tangerine.

I felt like warming up the Cricut and got busy with Flower Market. I love the results! It's simple in design but makes a nice setting for a photo. The flowers are painted in our Shimmer Brush and the clear sparkles were colored with a ShinHan marker! The edges of the flowers and vine were sponged, too. I also used a Journal Pen to outline around the edge of the page. When I cut the sentiment I cut it in Sweet Leaf and Black. I offset them a tiny bit to create a shadow. There you go! A quick easy and oh so pretty layout perfect for the front page of an album!

  1. Very pretty! Love the doodle lines and the glitter on the flowers is a nice touch.

    1. Thank Donna. The doodle lines were a last minute inspiration.

  2. Love the doodling around the border.

    1. I'm glad the second line came to me to doodle as a vine.

  3. Great layout! Love how shimmery you got your flowers. I also love your doodling.

    1. Thanks, Cat. I really love how this one turned out!

  4. Love the flowers and how you brushed them with color, and the added embellishments. I often do the same thing with my die-cut sentiments layered to show some outline in the back. Very pretty card.

  5. Lovely layout, Michelle! I love the sparkly tangerine flowers.
