Color Dare Challenge + Double Trouble Challenge

 Happy New Year! For our first challenge of 2021 we're pairing up with Double Trouble for a fun double challenge! Color My Heart Color Dare is sharing an Inspirational Photo for you to pick your colors....using at least 3 colors seen in the photo. To play along with Double Trouble use your Cuttlebug or other dies cutting machine to create a cozy look. If you add a cozy critter you'll meet their optional twist.

I decided to go with a slimline style card. I used my Cuttlebug to create a warm, cozy quilt-like look on the card front using one of our brand new paper packets called Happiness Lives Here plus some glitter papers. 

Here is a close-up of the sentiment details. The letters and background were cut with a Thin Cut Die. I used some Holographic paper for the letters and Vellum for the background. The holographic paper is a pinkish, orangish, yellowish tone and picks up the colors in the papers really well.
