Bouquet Card ~ Color Dare #419

 The Design Team at Color My Heart Color Dare has a new challenge for you and it's our popular Tic Tac Toe Challenge! Here's how it works: pick your colors by row, column or diagonal. After that if you want to use some of the other colors...or all of them...go for it! What you can't do is add any colors to the grid.

We reference Close To My Heart colors but you can use any brand you have. Just be sure you can make a VERY close match with your colors. Kind of close doesn't count. Make any paper craft you like then use the link on our home page to join the challenge.

For my card I used the middle column of colors: Blue Belle, Silver and Evergreen. The photo doesn't do the colors justice. The colors actually are a lot prettier in person. 

I started by stamping the bouquet in black, coloring with markers then used the Thin Cut dis to cut it out. The center of one flower is silver embossed. I just used one of our embossing pens, silver powder and my heat tool. Love the ease of embossing with the pens!

I cut my card base from Blue Belle cardstock. I used the darker side for the base and a piece of the lighter side as a layer on the front. 

The frames were cut using Thin cut dies in Glitter cardstock. Once on the card front I tucked the bouquet into the frames with some foam tape to pop it up. I added some Blue Belle Pearls to finish it off.
