Any Occasion Card

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #203: Join us in this week’s challenge combining Eggplant, Flaxen, Sweet Leaf and Colonial White...Looking forward to seeing your inspirations for this color challenge. We encourage you to use CTMH products; however you may use any products to participate using closest to colors...and still join in the fun.

Hop on over to Color Dare and see all the other great cards from the Design Team for some great inspiration.
I was at a Friend's home for a get-together and she had gone back to her hometown this summer and brought back quite a supply of dies, stamps and new scrapping I went wild with her dies.  The card shape was a die along with the frames and all the flowers and leaves were another die.  And what more appropriate for the color challenge was the beautiful designs of the Paper Fundamentals. A lot of layering and fussy cut backing on the flowers.  

Decided not to put any sentiment in the card because I want to be able to use this for a future special occasion and unknown for who or when.  I just love the fold and design of the card.  Below are photos of the card opened up from a couple angles.
