Treat Yourself for Color Dare #229

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog post!  This week we are challenging you to use all and only these 5  exclusive Close to My Heart colors:  Silver, Black, White Daisy, Pansy and Raspberry.  (Of course, you may substitute similar colors if you don't have these CTMH colors yet so you can still join in on the fun!)

My best friend Arlene (and best customer) has quite a stash of CTMH stamps so I decided I'd play with her "Fluttering Frames" stamp set to make this card.  With every Seasonal Expression launch CTMH consultants can purchase small stamp sets called "Petite Perks" to reward their hostesses and customers as they choose. These are the sentiments on my card.

Close to My Heart products used:
     White Daisy CS
     Black CS
     Ranger Silver Embossing Powder
     Versamark Ink
     Fluttering Frames stamps (retired)
     Raspberry Ink
     Pansy Ink
     Petite Perks--Treat Yourself stamps
     Sponge Dauber

Just click on the Color Dare graphic to check out what the rest of the fabulous Design Team has to inspire you.  We would love to see what you create with just these 5 colors!

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
     Craft for the Craic--Something with 2--using 2               colors, not counting neutrals
     Creative Knockouts--Birthday Wishes
     Seize the Birthday--Optional Felt
     Inspiration Destination #121--Anything Goes
     Crafting From the Heart #145--Anything Goes
