Color Dare #328 ~ Inspirational Photo

Color Dare #328 
Use the colors in the photo as inspiration for the colors you use in your creation.
Open through Feb. 14th

There are lots of colors to pick from in the inspirational photo above. Use the colors you see to create any paper craft you like. I used the colors Lagoon, Ballerina, Ruby and Intense Black. These are Close To My Heart colors but you can use any brand you like. 

I started out with a pattern from our Make It from Your Heart How-to Book. It makes card making so easy because you have the cutting guide right there along with photo examples. Use the pattern to make it exactly like the directions or use it as a starting point and make adjustments to suit you.

The stamp set is called Know That I care and has the outline and solid images to make the flower. I wanted to make the white sentiment layer stand out a bit so I inked the edges with a sponge. I added some sparkle with the white glitter paper and a touch of black shimmer brush on the flower centers.
