Colour Dare 242 - Sending Smiles Floral Collection Card

Now that we are in the month of May, you may have noticed that the theme at Colour Dare is a little bit different. Check out the main site to see how the challenges are being developed for each week as the Close To My Heart monthly featured paper pack is driving each of the colour challenges for the month. 

This first challenge has two specific colours from the Little Dreamer colours that also have papers in that paper pack that contain those colours - Blossom and Tangerine. If you so choose, those are papers that could be used for this challenge, However, we understand that this IS a colour challenge site, and that is why other colours were added to each of the challenges in the month so as NOT to limit entrants (and those of us on the design team) to JUST the colours in the featured paper pack! We also understand that not everyone uses Close To My Heart products and to be fair, we wanted to make sure that we were not limiting our entrants to those who only use Close To My Heart products. 

So, you certainly do NOT have to use the papers from the Little Dreamer paper pack... that is simply one option. Use whatever you are most comfortable using. We encourage you to use Close To My Heart products but if you don't have them, use what you have that is closest. 
Please note that it is ALL and ONLY the colours listed (Gold is optional this week).

On with my project... I chose to create a card that DID use the two Little Dreamer papers - and a floral stamp set. I added a few embellishments and I love the way this turned out. 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use these gorgeous colours in a project. You have until 10pm EST on Thursday to link up your project.
