Floral Notes Card ~ Color Dare #565

Can you believe it's a full week into September already? Time sure flies! September also means we have a new bi-monthly catalog AND a new Essentials catalog. Both catalogs are full of fun and exciting new products so be sure to check them out! 

This Color Dare Challenge is all about saying good-bye to the retired Color of the Year: Melon. It served us well and deserves one last hurrah. For this challenge you must use Melon as you focal color. Then you add 2 colors of your choice. See the graphic below for the fine print rules. 

I combined some retired with new for this card. I used a pattern from our new Make It from Your Heart Volume 6 book. Our How-to books make creating layouts and cards SO easy! With color samples, cutting and placement guides you'll be finished before you know it!

I colored with TriBlend Markers (see the photo for the colors). My two colors to go with Melon are Honey Butter and Sage. 

I first used Sage ink to stamp the sentiment but it didn't stand out very well. So I cut another piece of paper and stamped in Black. I trimmed it down and rubbed the edges on the Sage ink pad to define the edges. Then I used Foam tape to pop it up and placed it on top of the original sentiment I didn't like.
