Wishing You a Season of Faith, Hope and Love - Color Dare #394 Shades of Green

Here is my DT Card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #394 "Shades of Green" and completing in a Virtual Card Class to make a card using the template below with Tracey Pierce, CTMH Consultant.  


It was quite a challenge to look for different shades of Greens and patterns to create an Iris Fold template and I think I accomplished it.  For my background and frame used a grey woodgrain that really complemented the green patterns.  In my Spruced Up paperpack there were a couple of trees, perfect to adhere with 3D thin foam tape on the corner leaving space for a sentiment stamped direct on background with New England Ivy ink.  






Back a couple years ago (or more) purchased some other templates and special paper; but never put anything together and this class gave me the confidence to pull out these templates and do a few more cards.  The selection of papers to use was the most time consuming, but the template goes pretty fast.  

Please pop over to ColorMyHeart Color Dare and see DT members' inspiration, along with other participants that have entered this challenge. Please join us in this fun color challenge. Color My Heart Color Dare challenges are carried forward for two weeks so if you didn't share your project the first week you still have another week to enter that challenge...current challenges are on the side bar of the blog.

What an effective design. I bet that took ages to create. A beautiful gift for a friend or family member though, I bet anyone would love to receive such a lovely card.

Wow! As a fellow card maker I know this one took a lot of time and effort... but it turned out so pretty so that makes it worth it!
