Color Dare 287 - Friend Wreath Card

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge #287! 

I LOVE this week's colour challenge... Blossom, Bashful, Silver, Black and White. It would be pretty hard to do anything masculine with those kinds of colours but I suppose it is possible if you think hard enough... anyone can do anything with colours these days :) 

I decided to go the absolute feminine route - flowers and pearls on a wreath. Like I said, totally feminine. I designed this first in Cricut's Design Space and then put it to paper. The flat flowers are from the Hello Canada cartridge - one of the province's flowers although I did alter the colour scheme. 

Even though my photo shows varying shades of pink, the cardstock is ALL either Blossom or Bashful and I didn't even use the reverse side of any of the papers. Sometimes, photography can be difficult to get the correct shades... The only white is on the background paper - lines separating the Bashful pattern.

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the palette of colours shown above.

Your card is such a beauty and a labor of love! The wreath made of pearls and rolled flowers is just stunning and I love the silver glitter paper accent. Thanks for inspiring me yet again!
