Happy Birthday - Color Dare #233

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #233: This week’s colors shown in the Photo are Pomegranate, Peacock, Sea Glass, Black & White Daisy (All and Only).   

We encourage you to use CTMH products; however you may use any products to participate using closest to colors ... join in the have until March 9th.  You don't need a blog to submit your entry...if you are a member of Pinterest you can set up a Folder and link your entry to our Challenge. 

This card was made with one of the Cricut Free Calendars for the month of April which was modified not to print the calendar days and die-cut month.  Each month has the same flourish with different embellishment and colors related to that month ... for February the flourish had four leaf clovers and that was my first card using these calendars.  

The sentiment was a die, and the flower was another cut from CTMH Cricut Flower Market. The flourish panel was adhered to layers of peacock and black with thin foam, and jems added to the flowers.   

On the inside...decorated with another die-cut of the flower and adhered to a border panel of design paper.

Great card, Sue! How very clever of you to modify a free cut from Design Space to create this gorgeous card. I love the distressed flower edges too. Thanks for inspiring me yet again!

What a cool card! I really like how you were able to cut part of the floral and highlight with negative space and some with positive.

I really love your positive/negative design! It really makes in impact. Love the inside, too!

Such rich colors! Another beauty, impeccably created. I missed last week's Color Dare Challenge by letting time get away from me. Love these colors, too, so will try to get a card made for it.

I'm going to have to check out these free Cricut files! This is gorgeous with that flourish. Had to really look hard to find some of the colours (white and black) until I realized they were your background... sneaky. Beautiful card.
