Color Dare 259 - Birthday Wreath card

It's a bold and bright week at Colour Dare - also with a new palette appearance! The selected colours this week are ones that are bright and cheery and I wanted to do something a little different. 

I went to the Flower Market cartridge and decided on a wreath and flowers. The hardest part of this was the little purple flowers... I used the new two-sided Pansy cardstock - the back for the flower base and the lighter side for the front. That front piece is very difficult to line up! Gold glitter paper was used behind the Goldrush flowers to show through the holes. 

The optional gold was a perfect touch - a few sprigs of branches and the glitter gems added a nice touch. I had a hard time adding black but it was used on the frame of both the card base and the sentiments. 

Join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the colour palette shown above. 
Isn't it easier to read and interpret than the previous stack of ink pads?
