CD 451 - Many Blessings

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 451! 

The grid shows 9 options - you need to choose at least 4 of them (not including the centre square). 

I used the following:

    - one neutral (Mink)

    - Lagoon

    - Glacier

    - Sapphire 

    - Smoothie

    - embellishments 

The flowers and leaves were stamped and coloured in Lagoon, Glacier and Smoothie. I adhered the patterned paper to my card and then machine stitched along the papers using dark blue thread. The sentiment was die cut from Lagoon and Glacier and after adhering the flowers, I added a few gems. I also brushed the flowers with the Clear Shimmer Brush.
