CD 471 - Sending Smiles

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 471!

This week, we have a specific colour palette with the addition of ONE colour. 

I chose to add turquoise to the required palette (no surprise to anyone who knows me...)

The floral background is a printed patterned paper in black. I coloured the leaves grey and the flowers in shades of turquoise. That piece was adhered to craft foam and then to grey cardstock followed by turquoise cardstock and finally to a top folding card base. The sentiment was die cut from white cardstock and black glitter paper and the words were stacked. I used some liquid dots for the dots on the letter "I". The shaded lines on the flowers were brushed with a clear shimmer brush.
