Color Dare #251 With Freshly Made Sketch #295

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

Using the wonderful sketch by Freshly Made Sketch #295 I created two cards with slight changes.  The flowers on the left card were sponged with Sorbet and Juniper inks while the flowers on the right were stamped with Memento Black Ink onto Sorbet and Juniper card stock.  Some extra ink was sponged around the Sorbet flower edges.

Here are close up photos of each card:  

I would love to hear which one you like better.
