Beautiful Flowers Card ~ Color Dare #357

It's time for another color challenge and the Design Team at Color My Heart Color Dare has a fun Tic Tac Toe challenge for you! 

We share a Tic Tac Toe grid of colors for you to pick from. You can pick a row, column, diagonal, pick and chose or use them all! It's pretty much anything goes as long as the colors are in the grid! Plus we give you some FREE colors to use with the grid: black, white and neutrals (grey and browns). 

We reference Close To My Heart colors but you can use whatever brand you like. Just be sure you can make a very close match. Make any paper craft you like and link to our home page.

Here is the Tic Tac Toe grid for this color challenge. I used the top and middle rows for my colors.

A beautiful bouquet of flowers makes everyone feel good. This stamp set is perfect for creating just that and with the coordination Thin Cut dies its very easy! The can with flowers is one image but I wanted to use several colors of ink soooooo....... I stamped in brown first giving the ink pad a pull across the image to create the lines on the water can. Next I stamped the top part with the flowers in dark green. I use the light and dark pinks to stamp the flowers and the light green for the leaves. Next  I used the Thin Cut die to cut out the images then trimmed the flowers off the top of the water can and layered in on top of the brown can. The doily was also a Thin Cut and I sliced in it half to create the effect you see here.
