This is my first time entering the Close To My Heart Colour Dare Challenge - and I did it because I love the colour scheme for this particular challenge.
The colour combination is Glacier, Silver and White - how cool is that (literally - a cold colour scheme)? I had a definite idea in mind before I started - I knew I wanted to do a wreath but since we are past Christmas, I didn't want it to be a Christmas-based wreath - more something for a friend.
Working with limited colours can be difficult, especially when silver is limited at times. I decided to emboss the wreath in silver and then add the leaves in Glacier and the flowers in white. The remaining parts of the card were easily done - a few embellishments in silver, the Fundamental paper in Glacier, along with some stitching using floss in a colour as close to Glacier as I could find. I decided to stamp the sentiment in Slate as it was as close to silver as possible and wasn't as stark as black. Some clear sparkles mimic silver and that finished off my card. I'm happy with the way this turned out. The photography really doesn't do it justice - it is a lot prettier in real life.
