Doodled Florals Card ~ Tic Tac Toe Color Dare #457

 Friday means it's time for a new color challenge from our Design Team at Color My Heart Color Dare! This week is our popular Tic Tac Toe Challenge. Pick your colors by row, column or diagonal. After that if you wan to use some of the other colors in the grid that's fine. You can even use ALL of the colors. What you can't do is add new colors to the challenge.

We reference Close To My Heart colors buy 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 and when you're ready to join the challenge use the link in the post on our home page.

I started with the middle row of colors: Mink, Bluebird and Lemonade. Then I added Ballerina and Sage. this card was inspired by Becca Whitham and a group of cards she shared in our New Product Blog Hop. I changed the colors to fit the Tic Tac toe Challenge but pretty much went with her design.

It started with a soft color background behind the Floral die cut. Layered flowers surround the sentiment. The flowers were colored with our TriBlend Markers. These markers make blending colors super easy since there are three shades of the color in the marker! I dabbed dots of Pearls around the flowers as little accents.
