Color My Heart Color Dare #496

Good afternoon everyone, 

This week at Color My Heart Color Dare for challenge #496 we have a nicely muted set of colours from which you have to select a minimum of three.

We reference Close to My Heart colours but you can use any as long as the are a VERY close match. You can also use the free colours of black, white and Kraft but these cannot be included in your minimum three colours. 

Also for this challenge, don't forget that your card base must be one of the colours in the grid. 

I chose to use Harbour, Peach and Gold with my card base being made from Harbour. I kept my card quite simple and die cut the dragonfly and bee from Habour and Gold card before paper piecing them together and adhering over a Peach stamp edge die cut square. The sentiment is from a Clearly Besotted set called Tickle My Fancy and I thought it went well with the flying insects.

Please head over to the Color My Heart Color Dare blog and check out the inspiration from the rest of the Design Team and hopefully decide to join in the fun! 

Much love

  1. What a fun card! I love the contrast of colors.

  2. Nice dragonfly die and it looks really pretty over the pink frame... pretty card.

  3. OH! This is a super card Steph, great ideas in it too.

  4. Perfect sentiment for your lovely card! I so thought that the dragonfly, bee & stems were cut out of the square & you inlaid the gold. Nice!

  5. I love that you've created the shadow look by cutting from the stamp shape before paper piecing. Great visuals.
