Enjoy Your Special Day - ColorDare #454

This is my DT card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare Challenge #454 "Inspirational Board" combined with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #430.  All you need to do is select at least 3 Colors and you are free to use Black & White.  There were so many shades of blue and green to choose from and the other color shades were in the orange/yellow/rust group so I chose Sundance.  Inspirational Boards are difficult for me becase I see so many colors and not sure they are a good match; but here's my card for this challenge.  Hope it brings some smiles.  

All the pieces were cut from dies, arranged as in the sketch, some layered and then adhered with 3D thin foam tape for dimension. Sentiment and dragonfly were stamped with black ink on the scalloped round with distressed edge using Lagoon ink.  

Color My Heart Color Dare challenges are carried forward for two weeks so if you didn't share a project for this TicTacToe challenge you still have another week to enter.  

Both challenges are on the side bar of the Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog. Please check out Design Team Cards and other entrants to give you inspiration and join us for future fun color challenges.

Very pretty, Sue! Especially that die-cut flower. (May I borrow that die?) Your colors for the challenge worked beautifully and you also found a great sketch to replicate. Love it!
