Colour Dare 277 - Birthday Banner card

Welcome to another challenge at Colour Dare! 

This week, we have an extra special challenge - it is a Tic Tac Toe board! You can choose any three colours in a line - across, up and down or diagonally - we just ask that you let us know which line you have chosen by identifying the colours you are using. 

I am placing the Tic Tac Toe board at the top of my post this week so you can see it before my project. That way, you can see exactly the colour scheme I chose. 

I decided to go diagonal and use Juniper, White Daisy and Mink. I also added Black to my project as that is allowed. 

I used two of the patterned papers from the Chelsea Gardens paper pack as they fit both the Mink and Juniper colours. One of the new Hostess stamps in the catalog is this gorgeous monogram crest. Inside, I used an old happy birthday stamp because I couldn't find anything else that fit other than a monogram... and I really needed a happy birthday sentiment. The colouring was done with ShinHan markers and I had some old juniper ribbon from CTMH from years and years ago that I attached to the bottom of the banner. The pattern is from Make It From Your Heart - Volume 4. 

Come and join us at Colour Dare for this challenge - there are so many possible colour combinations that can be used!

Thursday, February 8 at 10pm EST.
