Color Dare #300--Bashful, Mink and Pacifica

The Color My Heart Color Dare Design Team is celebrating our 300th challenge with a prize giveaway!  We've made lots of changes over the years and we are happy to still be going strong.  Although we LOVE Close to My Heart colors and products you don't need to use them to join in the fun--just use similar colors without adding new colors to your creation.  (It is always acceptable to use Black and White Daisy to any of our color challenges unless specified not to). 

This fortnight we are challenging you to combine these fabulous Close to My Heart colors:

My card features stamps from last year's Constant Campaign called "From the Heart".  The background panel is Bashful Card Stock that was randomly stamped with a flower in Bashful Pigment Ink and then Clear Embossed.  Next Pacifica Ink was rubbed over the flowers with a Sponge Dauber to make the flowers "pop".  The Pacifica frame is accented with Bashful Pearls.  The greeting and flower spray on the Mink panel was stamped with Pacifica Pigment Ink and clear embossed.

Here is another view so you can see how shiny the Clear Embossed Pacifica Pigment ink is:
