Color Dare #604 - You're Sweet

This is my Design Team project for ColorMyHeart Color Dare # 604 "Six Pack" combined with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #580. All you need to do is select at least three colors from the Color Board and follow the rules for the neutrals. I chose to use Limeade, Flamingo and Ballerina.  

In my stash I had a macaron stamp which hadn't been used yet and the Color Board reminded me of a dish of macarons.  The macaron stamp is a stack of three; but I wanted to position them differently... so stamped the top macaron in limeade, flamingo and ballerina cardstock, fussy-cut each,  brushed edges with retired inks that matched close to the each color and filled center of macaron with white jel pen.  To bring in the flair as in sketch two bows from pink vellum were cut.  

Two circles, one each in Limeade and Ballerina were glued off-center using Limeade as a shadow, adhered off the edge of a pretty design paper selected for the background, snipped off side of circle, bordered with Limeade cardstock and adhered to a card base.  A sentiment was stamped on the pink circle. 

The macarons were adhered on the edge of the circle using 3D thin foam tape for dimension, applying Duvo White Blizzard Glitter over white jel pen and applied Wink of Stella glitter to finish off the macarons.  Wrapped up the macarons with the pink vellum bow.  This close up photo shows the deliciousness of the macarons.  
On the border of the inside of card base used a triangular shape of the same patterned paper as background and bordered it with a strip of limeade cardstock.
