Colour Dare Blessed Card

I didn't think I was going to get a chance to create anything for this week's Colour Dare Challenge but I managed to squeak out some time today to create a card. 
The colours are from the Calypso Paper Pack and, as much as I love that paper pack, I wanted to do something without using the papers from that paper pack as it makes it more of a challenge. The original ideas I had just wouldn't work as there were too many colours to work with so I had to come up with something else. After thinking about it, I decided to gather a number of images from our awesome Cricut cartridges and create a card by slicing the images into the background. This was a LOT more difficult to assemble than I expected - the word, "blessed" had a lot of little pieces left to make the word readable and adhering such small pieces onto glitter paper was quite a challenge! 

I love the black background and the base is white (just peeking out from behind), so that is where the white is incorporated. 

There is still lots of time to enter the Colour Dare challenge

  1. Just beautiful, Alyson. I always love birds... there's a bird challenge from June 4 thru Jun 9 over here:

    Give it a shot! BTW, isn't there a saying something about when in doubt put a bird on it? Or maybe that was butterfly... whatever! Great card!
