Colour Dare 427 - Special Friend Circles

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge #427! 

We have a tic-tac-toe board for you this week - based on the colours from the Happiness Lives Here paper pack. 

I used all colours except Toffee and Glacier. 

The Canary background was splattered using the Paprika and Blue Belle Shimmer Brushes. I die cut the rectangle using the Stitched Rectangle Thin Cuts. The insides of the circles are all patterned papers from the Happiness Lives Here paper pack and I used the Basic Circles and Stitched Circle Thin Cuts to cut each of the circles. An old stamp set was used to stamp the flowers and sentiment and that die cut piece was adhered using thin foam tape. A gold hoop was placed over the medium circle and some gold embellishing thread was added behind the flowers. I also brushed parts of the flowers with the Gold Shimmer Brush. The card front was adhered using craft foam and then a straight black line was drawn around the edge.

  1. I love the bright yellow color, Alyson! This cheerful card makes me eager for spring.

  2. Alyson your card is so pretty and bright! I love the circles and papers! Great job!

  3. Beautiful! I love the yellow background (which is rare for me) but it looks awesome with the splatters and those fun circles.

  4. Love the layout and your selection of papers and colors... beautiful card. I'm a fan of splattering of ink on a card; but I'm not that brave, maybe some day.

  5. I like your circle design and the pretty flowers! I'm already looking forward to spring! Not a winter person! Hope your lockdown is not driving you crazy. I keep hearing about it on the news.
