To a Special Friend - Color Dare #277

This is my design card made for Color Dare #277 combined with the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #437.

You will get to choose colors from a Tic-Tac-Toe board using the Close to My Heart color palette from the featured paper pack of the month. In January we have been featuring colors from the Chelsea Gardens paper pack. You must use and identify the three colors in a row/column of your choice with your entry. You may also add any or all of the other colors from the Tic-Tac-Toe board but you may not add any additional colors NOT on the board.

I chose to use all of the colors from the Tic-Tac-Toe Board and a variety of papers from the Chelsea Gardens paper pack.  All design panels were layered with black cardstock to define the sketch challenge.  The main background paper was one of the PML Cards in the packet.  

Please stop by and view the DT's inspiration for these challenges...and the Color Dare Challenge will be open for (2) weeks and you still have time to enter in our #276 color challenge of Mink, Sweet Leaf and Heather.

I love how you used the most heavily detailed paper but focused on ONE flower for the centre section - great idea! That background paper is one of my favourite patterns in the entire pack - too bad it isn't one of the regular papers! Super card - love every aspect of it!
