Color Dare #207 Meets Nacho Average Challenge #178

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog post!  This week we are challenging you to use all and only the following Close to My Heart colors:  Saffron, Canary, White Daisy and Gold.  Of course if you don't have these exact colors yet you can substitute similar colors so you can still join in on the fun.

     Whimsy Paper Fundamentals (yellow stripe)
     Saffron CS
     Canary CS
     White Daisy CS
     Dandy stamp
     Belated Birthday (retired)
     Saffron Ink
     Gold Foil Tape
     Metallic Gold Marker
     2" Scallop Circle punch (retired)

The background panel was stamped with the Dandy stamp rotated and stamped over and over again.  This small stamp is less than 2" square and is so easy to use!  I used two strips of gold foil tape next to each other to make the bottom banner on the card.  The gold trim on the top banner was made with a ruler and the  CTMH gold metallic marker.

The inspiration for my card layout came from Nacho Average Challenge #178:

I'm also entering this card into the Seize the Birthday Anything Goes challenge.

Here is the color graphic for the Color Dare challenge:
