Sweet as Honey - Emerald Winner CMH Color Dare

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge No. 134        
Cotton Candy, Olive, Lagoon, BlackWhite Daisy 

I started out with cutting a Daisy White Hexagon Card from Cricut, but the colors were a lot sharper when I cut the same card with black.  I still used the white as a layer for dimension layering the hexagons in back and front of the white cardstock, and then the middle of each flower on top of the black cardstock. Used Stamp Set C1537 Honeycomb Flair and stamped the Hexagons in Cotton Candy, Olive and Lagoon CTMH Inks...

The Pink and Lagoon Hexagons were made into shapes of a flower, and the Olive hexagons represent leaves.  The Sentiment was from the same Stamp Set stamped with Black Ink, adhered with glue dots and added a couple turquoise oceanside sequins. Embellished the honeycones with a Butterfly cut from Daisy White and layered with a cut from Lagoon glitter paper, added pearls to the center of the butterfly and adhered with glue dots.

The Color Dare Challenge is so much fun and challenging to create cards with colors you wouldn't imagine would be a good mix...but they can be and this is verified by the great samples from the Design Team which is very inviting for your participation in this challenge.  Click HERE to go to the Color Dare Challenge.

I LOVE this card! Hexagons are such a cool pattern and I like how you created two flowers with them. I'm pinning this card to: https://www.pinterest.com/njstampingqueen/cards-with-hexagons/

Such a pretty card. I love the glittery backing on the butterfly and the sentiment is perfect with the hexagons!

The contrast looks even more striking with the black as a background. I love the patterns you created with the hexagons. Thanks for joining us for this week's challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare.
