Color Dare #334 With Tuesday Morning Sketch #495

There is a "pick 3 colors" (inspired by the Love of Color book) challenge for Color My Heart Color Dare #334 so I chose Lagoon, Peach and Gold.  Neutrals are free to use so I used Black and White also.  I used a Black Shin Han Touch Marker to outline the floral array before adhering it to the striped background.

I was intrigued by the current Tuesday Morning Sketch #495 and it was used as my card inspiration.

The following Close to My Heart products were used:
     Black CS
     Know That I Care stamps
     Lagoon Ink
     Peach Ink

Here is the color palette from the Color Dare challenge which is open until Thursday evening, March 28.

One of my March goals is to participate in ALL of the Heart 2 Heart challenges and this will be my third entry.  The theme is your favorite "Tools" so I will share with you that my favorite tool is my Xacto Paper Cutter.  It is a guillotine type cutter with a handy paper edge guide.  It is lightweight, travels well and makes accurate cuts. Having cut all those strips of patterned paper for the above card it was definitely a very useful tool!

I'm also entering my card into the following challenges:
     Crafting-With-Friends--Anything Goes
     Kitty Bee Designs--In the Garden
     Craft Rocket Designs--Flowers

There is a current promotion by Close to My Heart!  It's a "BOGO 50% off Paper Party" and you can find out about it here. (The pretty patterned paper from the above cards is available with this promotion).

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
