CD 563 - Blue Poinsettias

 Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 563! 

It's a tic tac toe board this week - I used the right column (Sapphire, Capri and Green Apple) plus silver. 

This card took me a long time to piece together! I die cut the poinsettia image three times and coloured the leaves in shades of blue. The sentiment was heat embossed and I placed the silver outline of the images around that, adding in the coloured leaves. A piece of Sapphire cardstock was placed behind the card front and adhered to the base with craft foam. Where is the green? Look closely at the flower centres. It was the only place I could add another colour without changing the feel of the card! 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you interpret this week's challenge. 

You have two weeks to link up your project. 

We can't wait to see what you create!




  1. Stunning card Alyson! Love the silver with the flowers.
