Color Dare #63--Ruby, Pacifica and Outdoor Denim and Blog Candy Alert!

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare post!  The Close To My Heart colors we are using this week are Ruby, Pacifica and Outdoor Denim. (You may substitute similar colors if you don't have these CTMH colors yet.)  The Artbooking cartridge was used to create the vertical lattice strip cut from Outdoor Denim CS and layered over White Daisy CS (page 47 overlay shift cut at 4" at Real Dial Size and trimmed to fit the card).  The greeting is one of Close To My Hearts' new individual stamps called Heartfelt Birthday Wish stamped in Ruby ink.  I used a long stamp from the Frosted Cardmaking Kit to accent the greeting panel.  This was layered over Ruby CS.  The card base is Pacifica CS.  The last 2 final touches I used were 3D Foam Tape and Silver Glitz Glitter Gel.

This card went together very quickly and I still have remnants of the lattice overlay to use in a future card.  I am also linking this card up to Bitten by the Bug-2 Overlay challenge.

We look forward to how you will use these colors together!  Please use a direct link to your blog post (not your entire blog) by Thursday, October 9 at 12pm CST here.
