Friend Card ~ Color Dare #478

Welcome to our first Color Dare Color Challenge of 2022! Each Friday our Design Team hosts a new color challenge and we hope you will join us. For this challenge, pick your neutral colors then pick ONE color to go with your neutrals. Black, White, Gold & Silver are FREE colors to use with your neutral and color pick. 

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

I decided to use our new paper called Sweet as Honey and a coordinating stamp set. Since we can only use ONE color for this challenge I went with yellow. I also used the free colors of black, white and gold. 

Only the flowers were colored for this challenge leaving the rest of the image in black and white. I fussy cut around the top of the flowers  and popped up the flower layer with some foam tape. 

Here's a close-up that kind of shows the shimmer on the flowers and sentiment. I used Clear Shimmer on the flowers and Gold Shimmer on the sentiment. It adds a nice but subtle bit of shimmer to the look.
