Birthday Wishes

Welcome to Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #188Join us in this week’s challenge combining the colors, all and only, White Daisy, Sapphire, Pomegrante, Glacier and Flaxen until Thursday, April 14, 2016 to create and link up your project...look forward to seeing your inspirations for this color challenge. These colors are all in Regatta PaperPak. We encourage you to use CTMH products; however you may use any products to participate using close-to colors...and still join in the fun.    

Since all the colors were in the Regatta PaperPak I decided to use this paperpak; however the background is made up of all the different the Zip Strips from the Design Papers.  The strips were put on a diagonal and edges cut when they were all placed on the cardstock.  

I tried to match this up to AHSC sketch this week; but just couldn't get the right combination of how I would finish the card, so I stamped the Lighthouse with Sapphire ink, masked to get another fence in the foreground, backed with red cardstock, and adhered to card with 3D Thin Foam Tape.  Stamped the Sentiment and also adhered with 3D Thin Foam Tape.  

CTMH Products Unless Otherwise Identified:

Fabulously fun card, Sue! Thanks for reminding me to use up those zip strips. Great job masking to get that second fence in also.

I like this - the zip strips aren't overwhelming like some of them can be from some of the paper packs. They make a neat background. Your masking is terrific! Great card :)

Having seen your card "up close and personal" I can attest to the impeccable craftsmanship. I love the way you used the zip strips - just like a strip quilt. Fabulous way to use the colors and the Regatta DSP.

Super use of the zip strips! They make a great background for the lighthouse. The second fence about is very nice!

Great use of the zip strips! They look great as a background paper by itself on your beautiful card.
