Thanks - CTMH Springtime Wishes

This is my first card as a Design Team Member for Color My Heart Color Dare.  I had thought about applying but it wasn't until Marie approached me to see if I would be interested in being a Design Team Member for Color Dare, and through our conversations and her encouragement I decided I would accept this as a new challenge in papercrafting. new journey begins with a Design Team creation for Color Dare Challenge #175 using the sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #141.  Click on either of these challenges to see what the Design Teams have created and the other entrants inspirations.

Please head over to Color My Heart and check out and join us in this week’s Color Dare Challenge #175. You have until Thursday, January 14, 2016 to create and link up your project…hoping for your participation. If you have never done a challenge before this is a good place to start…love to see what you create.  


Stamped my flowers on Glacier Cardstock with VersaMark, heat embossed with Silver embossing powder and fussy-cut.  The leaves were stamped on the Silver paper and fussy-cut.  The card and the background paper were edged with VersaMark and heat embossed with silver.

The panel behind the flowers is a Die-Cut from CTMH Artistry...using the negative for the front of card, heat embossed with silver along edges, and adhered silver paper on back.  Then used the actual die-cut  for a border on the inside, along with a couple left-over flowers, leaving space to write a personal note.  Wink of Stella "Clear" was added to flowers, Sentiment stamped on design paper, and Silver glitter tape added.

Also submitted to the following:
