Much Love, Thanks - Color Dare #287

My DT card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #287 combined with the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #447.  My background was made from White Daisy cardstock, dry embossed and then swiping Bashful ink over the top of the embossed card and adhered to a Blossom Panel.  The heart image was stamped using Pebble ink, flowers stamped in Blossom, leaves  in Bashful and sentiment in Pebble. 

The stamped image was rectangular so used the smaller die from Cutz "Nested Wacky Stitched Circle", die cut next larger size in Blossom, layered with thin foam and stamped the sentiment.  However, the sentiment was too light, tried to stamp over it and ruined it.  Ended up having to fussy-cut the heart image, stamping sentiment again on white cardstock using my Misti, cut smaller circle to back the heart image and adhered to the background after applying the zip strips.  Added a couple floral seguins to the flowers.  

Please stop by and view the DT's inspiration for these challenges ... and would love to see what bright and cheery projects you will create.  The Color Dare Challenge will be open for (2) weeks...AND you still have time to enter in our Color Dare #286 TicTacToe choosing your own colors from the grid Click Here. 

On the inside of the card added a border on the bottom with design paper and then added a cluster of small flowers from the stamp set.
