Relax - Color Dare #249

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #249: This week we are challenging you to using the color palette from the "No Worries" paper pack. Color Challenge: Sapphire, Lagoon, Glacier, Whisper, Cashmere and White Daisy. Of course if you don’t have these CTMH colors yet you may substitute similar colors. Hop on by and see the many inspirational cards by our DT and other entrants.  

Reminder: Click on side bars for Color Dare SNEAK PEEKS for future June color challenges so you can plan ahead ... and join the Buddy Program, and help your Buddy enter a project as well.  

This card was created using the Freshly Made Sketch #293, a little out of the box; but unfortunately did not notice until posting this card for Color Dare that the challenge had been closed.  Was going to use the sapphire palm tree design paper, but instead of another design paper for the circular border...die cuts were placed on an imaginary circle.  

My circle was going to be the palm tree design paper and just make a palm tree set similar to the ones in the paper and piece together with different colors.  However, when I cut the palm tree in the weave design paper, I liked the effect of the other side of that paper to be my palm color and it looked so nice against the Lagoon background.  

The palm tree was modified in size, and a second smaller palm in the opposite direction was attached to the base and welded together.  

Update on Neck Brace:  Went to Neurosurgeon today and he said to wear the neck brace while out and about; but in the home I didn't have to wear it ... so back to scrapping. However, my range of motion in my neck is still somewhat limited so may still use my kitchen breakfast bar to put together the card.  Then I'll have two places to clean up.

I'm loving this card - that's an awesome palm tree! It's also great thinking re the FMS design - I looked at that sketch and thought how hard it would be to do something with that (even though you missed the deadline...)
Super news re the brace - and so glad to have you back creating again :)
