Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #430

 Morning everyone 

Thanks for stopping by today and checking in with the latest Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #430. We have a Tic, Tac, Toe board today and just a reminder, as always, that we reference Close To My Heart colours but you can use any brand as long as it’s a very close match.

Now with this board I challenged myself even further by refusing to let myself use the beautiful Avocado green in the top right hand corner. I love green and I add it to every project because it’s just so versatile and to me it goes with everything. However, my lovely Color My Heart teammates have shown me, with their beautiful makes, that green is not always needed. So I stepped away from the green! 

I chose to use the middle column of Sundance, Lagoon and Espresso. 

Unfortunately my ‘lagoon’ card has photographed much bluer than it really is so you will have to trust me when I say it is a colour match!
The heart die is Concord & 9th and I have paper pieced the sundance and espresso card. I kept the card simple with a die cut sentiment and some metallic coloured wooden embellishments. I added a frame by scoring directly onto the card front from behind before I placed the elements to the front.

I hope you’ll join in the fun and maybe challenge yourself a little by not using your ‘go to’ colour! Take a look at the rest of the Design Teams super projects over on the Color My Heart Color Dare blog

See you soon for more colour fun!

  1. Great card! I love that heart cut! You did a great job with out the green. ;-)

  2. I love your card and you did really good stretching yourself on the colors!

  3. Such a pretty heart and love the colors you selected, and your colors selected are so pretty against the Krafty background.

  4. Love the heart die but the arrow piercing the middle is the best! I would have never thought "hearts" with this color combo but it works!

  5. Love how you filled the heart with all the colours, its really effective.

  6. I love this card Steph... The way you resisted the avocado color was especially funny!! I am also a sucker for all things green... It just makes me happy... Thanks for the inspiration teamie.. Have a good day and stay safe.
