Sunburst Card ~ Color Dare #448

Welcome to a new color challenge from the Design Team at Color My Heart Color Dare! This challenge give you 6 colors but you only have to use at least 3 of the colors. You can use more of the colors if you like just be sure to use at least 3! We also give you a few FREE options, too. Black, White and Gold are free to use if you like. 

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. Make any paper craft you like and when you're ready to join the challenge use the link in the post on our home page. This card is also being shared with Heart 2 Heart for their Get Inky challenge.

For my card I had some more fun with our Sunburst Background Thin Cut Die. There is no limit to the combinations you can do with this die!!! All you have to do is cut as many colors as you want to use OR keep it totally monochrome. That looks great, too! I save the pieces I don't use this time so I can use them later in a different project. 

For this card my colors are Cinnamon, Desert Rose, Peach and Sage. I didn't want to just use plain cardstock and honestly I didn't feel like stamping a design on the cardstock. This led me to using an embossing folder on two of the colors. I also like a bit of sparkle so I used Glitter Paper for one of my colors.

For the tag I stamped a sentiment and fancied it up with a little group of flowers. The flowers are colored with a water brush and covered in Clear Shimmer that doesn't show in these photos. The flowers are popped up a bit with some foam tape. Gold Sequins finished the look!
