CD 289 - Sending Hugs

Welcome to another Colour Dare challenge! 

This week, the palette is a mix of pink and green with a grey thrown in for good measure. I decided to  pull out my favourite leaves from Chelsea Gardens and some Flower Market flowers and combine them with a circular sentiment for my card. 

The floral centres came with the flowers and they were cut using white glitter paper. The gems are retired and I can't even recall the name of them but they are a perfect match to the raspberry colour! I coloured the inside of the leaves with a ShinHan marker. I also pierced holes all along the edge of the woodgrain piece but that is hard to see in the picture. 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the palette shown above to create something. You have two weeks to link up your project.
