Color Dare #306 Meets Atlantic Hearts Sketch #277

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog post!  This week we are inviting you to try combining the following three Close to My Heart colors:  New England Ivy, Saffron and Heather with an option of Gold.  If you don't have these exact colors yet you may substitute similar ones so you can still play along with our challenge.  It is OK to add neutrals also.

Close to My Heart products used:
     Gold Metallic Card Stock
     Enchantment Fundamentals Paper
     New England Ivy CS
     Saffron CS
     Heather CS
     Gone Fishin' greeting stamp (retired)
     Gold embossing powder

Instead of adding sequins, pearls or enamel dots as accents in the top left corner, I used a regular hole punch in the patterned paper to reveal the metallic gold underneath.

  3. The gold paper and the embossed sentiment is a nice contrast to the bold background and banners.
