Colour Dare 457 - Birthday Wishes

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 457!

We have a tic tac toe grid this week - it is based on the colours from the Close To My Heart paper pack called Isabella. 

I used the left column (Evergreen, Mink and Sundance) as well as the bottom row (Sundance, Gold and Sage).

I used a pattern from an old Make It From Your Heart book but reversed the top two panels. The papers are all from the Isabella paper pack. The bottom of the green panel was die cut using a stitched bracket die. The flowers were coloured and die cut. I added some gold Liquid Pearls and Stickles to the berries and a birthday sentiment was placed along the cross piece. Some gold embellishing thread and glitter gems were added around the card and the lines of the flowers were brushed with the gold shimmer brush. 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the tic tac toe grid shown above.
