CD 355 - Stitched Flower Birthday

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge #355!

This week, we have a colour palette taken from the Love of Colour Book. Please note the neutrals that are included on the palette plus Black and White are also allowed. 

I decided to pull out some old Fundamental paper since it had the Espresso background on it. I coloured in the remaining parts using markers in four of the colours from the palette - Candy Apple, Goldrush, Fern and Glacier. 

Using a background of Candy Apple and Glacier, I cut apart the coloured background and placed it on the Glacier checkered paper. Then it was time to create the flower. This was an idea that a fellow Design Team member did a couple of weeks ago. Miss Carrie's Creations showed how to create these gorgeous multi-stacked flowers using vellum and a fringe at the top. I added a small sentiment and bow that finished off my card. 

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