Color Dare #230 Meets Mojo Monday #483

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog post!  This week we are challenging you to create something using all and only the following exclusive Close to My Heart colors:  Pixie, Saffron, Whisper and White Daisy.  (Of course if you don't have these CTMH colors yet you may substitute similar colors so you can still join in on the fun!)  I must admit that I struggled with this challenge as Saffron is my least favorite CTMH yellow, but I minimized its presence on my card which I am satisfied with.

Close to My Heart products used:
     Pixie CS
     White Daisy CS
     Whisper CS
     Flower Market Cricut cartridge--typewriter and                 circles
     Charming Cascades stamps
     Saffron Ink
     Typed Note stamp set--retired (Happy Birthday)
     Vine Embossing folder
     White and Gold Ribbon
     Whimsy Paper Fundamentals--Dotted pattern
     3D Foam Tape

My card layout was inspired by this Mojo Monday sketch:

I'm also entering my card into the following challenges:
     Between the Folds--use Ribbon
     Seize the Birthday--optional--Felt
     As You Like it Challenge--Ribbon or Lace (I much           prefer Ribbon--it's easier to attach)

Now head on over to the Color My Heart Color Dare blog to check out what the rest of the awesome Design Team has to inspire you.  Just click on the Color Dare graphic to get there.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week!
