You Are Always In My Heart - Color Dare #311

This is my Design Team project with ColorMyHeart Color Dare #311 combined with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #282.  There was such a variance of bright and pastel colors in the palette I wasn't sure how to bring them together...however, using a combination of both the lighter and darker sides of the cardstock, outlining the hearts with peacock and breaking up the saffron heart with the smaller pink heart...believe it was accomplished.  Used charcoal instead of black for the sentiment again to keep the softness of the colors.

We use CTMH color names for reference... however, you are welcome to use any products as long as you match closest to the colors in the Board and no additional colors except those on the color palette.  New Guidelines on Neutrals: White, Cream, Black, Gray, Kraft and Brown(s) are free to use; however if they are included in the challenge graphic they MUST be used in your creation.  

Please stop by and view the DT's inspiration for these challenges and join us...we would love to see the projects you create. We welcome Stampin' Up and all the other color competitors, if you're reading this, let's show some tough competition and join our challenge.  This Color Dare Challenge will be open for (2) weeks AND you still have time to enter in our previous Color Dare #310 Click Here.

using that delicate Ballerina pink with the peacock backing makes it stand out. Great interpretation of both challenges.

That lacy border is gorgeous, and the color combination is quite pretty. I wouldn't have tried that trio of colors, and I love how challenges push me out of my comfort zone. You did a great job with the sketch. So glad you played along at AHSC.
