Live, Love, Laugh

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #203: Join us in this week’s challenge combining White Daisy, Sorbet, Canary and Crystal Blue...Look 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. 

I loved the Chrysanthenum Corner die from a previous card so thought I would do another card using both the cut and the frame and backed with sorbet cardstock.  I pulled out another die-cut for the opposite corner and cut two pieces (one in colonial white and crystal blue) and layered leaving a peek of crystal blue and backed with canary cardstock.  

Stamped using the Brushstrokes Flair alternating blue and yellow across the white daisy cardstock, and placed the crystal blue hexagon cut outs along the edge of the die cut and and upper left-hand corner, along with sporadically in the die cut itself.  

Live, Love and Laugh were die cut in several colors, and layered with another color peeking behind the words.  I had previously cut the heart to use for my sentiment but instead at the last minute decided to add to a spot on the card where it looked like the brushstroke ran across the heart.  I really love this color combination, so bright and summery, and instead of design paper decided to use some of the dies I had in my stash...hope you enjoy my creation.

Was thinking I had seen this die cut before... it's gorgeous. Love the use of the Brushstrokes stamp set - kind of looks like images from the sky coming down. Interesting way to use the colours in the Colour Dare challenge. Really like this card.
