Happy Birthday - Color Dare #254

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #254: This week we are challenging you to using the color palette from the "Prickly Pear" paper pack to use (ALL and ONLY) these CTMH Colors in Prickly Pear: Blossom, Emerald, Lemon, Poppy, Sapphire, Sea Glass, Sorbet, Tangerine and White Daisy OR (choosing 3-4 of the colors and neutrals). 

Making a Birthday Card for my daughter-in-law who just moved back to New York, so I wanted a little bit of Arizona (cacti) and the summer flowers of New York (Floral background).  Took one of the PML cards and cut out the white space to use for a shaker card.  From the complements added a cactus, a small flower and  a heart to the outside of the shaker.  Framed shaker with a design paper, using one of my tailored stitches and attached to the background.  Sentiment was a die, layered and adhered to bottom.  

If you don’t have these CTMH colors you may substitute similar colors. Hop on by and see the many inspirational cards by our DT and other entrants.  

August Sneak Peeks will be coming out soon challenging you to using the color palette from "Jack" paper pack.  

On the inside of the card added some of the complements on the bottom corner and design sheet on the border.

Wow - what a lot going on in and on this card! I love how the sequins aren't all collected at the bottom... (how did you manage that?) Neat combination of NY and AZ combined into the same card. Very cool :)

I love how you adapted the PML card to create a Shaker card--just fabulous. Your card inside is very appealing also. Thanks for inspiring me today. :) Marie
