Color Dare #275--Fern, Heather, Bashful with Option of Gold

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog post!  This week we are inviting you to see what you can do with these Close to My Heart colors:  Fern, Heather, Bashful with an option of Gold.  You have 2 weeks to try these colors out and share them with us.  Of course, if you don't have these Close to My Heart Colors yet you can substitute similar colors so you can still play along.

My card features Basics Fundamentals paper (Heather floral background) and Enchantment Fundamentals paper (Fern striped panel) with butterfly stamped and cut from Bashful paper with the new Chelsea Gardens Cardmaking Stamp and Thin Cuts set.  I "fussy cut" the butterfly so that when I used the Thin Cut for the Gold Foil butterfly it would create a nice shadow for it.  The three gold embellishments were cut from Gold Foil with a 1/4" hold punch.  A Gold Metallic pen was used to color in the "Happy" letters.

This photo was taken from a different angle so you can see how shiny that Gold Foil paper is!

  1. Love it. Thanks for joining us at Craftaholics R Us.

  2. Marie I'm so glad you took that second photo or I would have missed the use of gold foil! Oh and the gold pen use on the "Happy" is a great way to tie it all together!

  3. I love the way you set your butterfly on the gold background - very unique effect. The background paper you chose was not one I would have considered but I love it. Beautiful card :)

  4. I almost used the same sketch, but thought I'd use the other Tuesday sketch challenge when I saw your card. And almost used the same papers. Are we thinking alike? Beautiful card, I'm glad I didn't compete with this sketch.

  5. I love how you shadowed your butterfly with gold. So Pretty!

  6. So gorgeous! The background is stunning and the betterfly is so lovely! Thanks for joining us at Fab'n'Funky challenge.Neva
