Happy To Be Friends

Welcome to this week's Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #186.  Join us in this week’s challenge using only and all the colors in photo (Gypsy, Lagoon and White Daisy.) You have until Thursday, March 31, 2016 to create and link up your project for another great color combination....look forward to seeing your inspirations for this color challenge.  


The Color Challenge was combined with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #152, and Between the Fold Weekly Challenge #17B, using an embossing folder.  

Here is the You Tube tutorial on how to create a embossing background "Cuddlebugged Wax Paper" technique.  I used this technique for both the Lagoon background, and the one behind the sentiment using Gypsy.  

Here is a close-up photo of the Sentiment label on Vellum so that the Gypsy embossing technique pattern shows through.  Flowers were cut from Cricut Design Space, adhered, and then gypsy glitter paper placed in the center of each flower.  

This photo shows the layers added to the outside of the card using both the regular and thin foam tapes.  The inside added a triangular border and added some of the additional flowers that were I wouldn't put them in a stash which probably would never to be used again.

I love the Lagoon background paper--is that random stamped or did I just not purchase it? Lovely card--the multiple layered ovals look really gorgeous. Thanks for inspiring me today.

I love it! The colours are great and I love that the scallops are on the inside not the outside, a unique touch for sure. Thanks for playing along with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge (AHSC)!
