Hugs - Color Dare #384

Here is my DT card for Color My Heart Color Dare #384 "Greys + 2 Colors of your Choice" (Wisteria and Julep).  Selected a light grey from the Paper Fundamentals (Slate) with a polka-dot design, cut a corner die and a decorative edge, layered this on top of slate cardstock. First layer of the flowers were cut in Wisteria cardstock, top layer was cut with vellum and adhered together with thin foam tape.  Cut the flourish out of Julep cardstock, placed on polka-dot paper, randomly adhered flowers to the flourish for dimension and added a Julep Glitter Jem to the center of each flower.  

Something seemed to be missing in the background, thought it needed a little color...die cut the same corner border using both wisteria and julep cardstock, placed alternating colors in some of the diamonds and then adhered with thin foam tape again for dimension.  Cut "Hugs" from an alphabet die set in slate and julep, layered for shadow and glued on side border. 

Took some of the left over diamonds and adhered on the edge to the inside of the card.

Never would have put purple and grey together but they are stunning.

Suzanne this is beautiful! I love the die cut and the little diamonds in two colors. Perfect backdrop for the vellum flowers.
