A Happy Hello - Kaleidoscope

My inspiration for the ColorMyHeart Color Dare #140 came from one of the cards my daughter made when this Stamp Set "A Happy Hello" Stamp of the Month came out.  Using Cricut Design Space CTMH Artiste, I chose a swing card and cut from Colonial White.  

Using VersaMark I stamped the variety of circular stamps on White Daisy, and some from Stamp Set W2031 Kaleidoscope Blooms, using Embossment Powders closest to Ruby and Crystal Blue and heat embossed all images in both colors.  Then came the fussy-cut for each layer of the Kaleidoscopes and placing on the card creating several layers with 3D Thin Foam Tape.  Added ruby beads to the center of each Kaleidoscope.  

The swing card is nice because as you are decorating the front of the card you are also decorating the inside.  See pictures below for inside of card.  Sentiment came from "A Happy Hello" stamp set as well and was stamped on front of card.  

The inside decorative frame was cut from Cricut CTMH Artiste from Colonial White and Crystal Blue Cardstock and left blank until it becomes a personalized card.   

Please go to the Color Dare to see the Design Team inspirations for this challenge, and join the Challenge, colors are fun to work with.
