Color Dare #187 Meets Atlantic Hearts Sketch #153

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog post! The Color Dare challenge this week is to combine White Daisy and any or 1, 2, 3 , 4 or all 5 of the following greens: Pear, Sweet Leaf, Fern, Topiary and New England Ivy.  (Of course, if you don't have these CTMH colors yet you may substitute similar colors so you can still have fun and play along with us.)

My cards use the following greens:  Sweet Leaf, Topiary and New England Ivy.
The stamp set is called "4 My Friend" and has been retired.

Which card do you like better?

     White Daisy CS
     Topiary CS
     Topiary Ink
     New England Ivy CS
     New England Ivy Ink
     For My Friend (retired)
     Miracle paper (retired)
     Striped stencil (retired)
     Sponge Dauber
     Sap Green Shin Han Touch Marker

Other products used:
     Liquid Pearls White (on first card)
     Stickles Crystal glitter glue (on second card)

Would you like to know how I created the 3 green "embellishments" on each card?  I created a stencil with a regular hole puncher and colored it in with the Sap Green Shin Han Touch marker.  On the first card I also added 3 tiny dots made with Liquid Pearls.  On the second card I covered the dots with Crystal Stickles.  

My inspiration for my card layout is from Atlantic Hearts Sketch #153:

I'm also linking this card up to Seize the Birthday challenge and the Shopping Our Stash challenge for a masculine card.

Now it's your turn to get creative--how many greens will you use?  Come check out what the rest of the Color My Heart Color Dare Design Team has to inspire you.

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

Thanks for sharing your technique on embellishments. My daughter used a similar technique and of course she passed it on to me. We usually use glitter tape with a hole punch and then put liquid glass on to round it....a lot cheaper than a lot of your embellishments. Both cards are very pretty.

Very creative way to make your accents! Thanks for sharing the idea.
