CD 545 - Birthday Blossoms

 Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 545! 

Choose at least three colours from the graphic below. Neutrals and metallics are free to use. 

I used all five colours. I took advantage of Close To My Heart's double sided cardstock with the lighter colour on the reverse side. I die cut rows of diamonds and layered them from darkest lightest several times. That background was trimmed down to fit the front of my card. The flowers and leaves were die cut from both the light and dark sides of the other three colours and I inked those pieces for added interest. They were arranged to the left side of the hot foiled sentiment. A few clear dew drops finished off this card.

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

You have two weeks to link up your project. 

We can’t wait to see what you create!
