Birthday Card ~ Co0lor Dare #446

  Friday means it's a new color challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare! This time we're challenging you to use three colors for your project: Yellow, Blue AND Grey. You must use all three colors but Black, White and Silver are free. We reference Close To My Heart colors but you can use any brand you have as long as you can make a very close match. Kind of close doesn't count.

Make any paper craft you like. When you're ready to join the challenge use the link in the post on our home page

I'm also sharing this card with Heart 2 Heart for their Sponging Challenge.

I made this fun card for our challenge. Using the line of lit candles made me think of a lot of smoke so I sponged Grey ink above the candles. haha. The candle flames were colored with a marker then painted with a Yellow Shimmer Brush. The sparkle are actually clear but I colored them with a blue marker so they coordinate with the color theme.
