Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #435

Morning all

I’m joining in with my teammates for Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #435 (I usually do the even number challenges) because this week’s colour is my favourite colour! 

I wanted to get as many shades of green as possible so I reached for a mandala die and settled in for an afternoon of paper piecing! In my haste to ‘go green’ I forgot to add the one colour of my choice but the patterned paper has a little yellow dot in it so we’ll got with that. šŸ˜‚

I’m absolutely certain I’ve purchased some adhesive sheets but I cannot find them anywhere so I stuck double sided tape to the back of the card before cutting it and used that instead. Much quicker and neater than trying to glue those pesky little bits in! 

I made this card at the beginning of Feb and since I hadn’t yet managed to make a Valentine’s card I decided to turn this into one. Partly because I’m not a fan of lovey dovey cards but also because my husband is Irish (well Northern Irish) so I thought it was fitting!

So please do pop over to the Color My Heart Color Dare blog and join in the challenge. Check out all the other wonderful inspiration from the rest of the Design Team and leave them some happy feedback. 

They are also having a lovely green themed challenge over at Double Trouble so I will be entering my card there.

And of course with so much die cutting, how could I not enter Happy Little Stampers March challenge!

Much love
