Color Dare #206 Meets Sketch Saturday #424

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog post!  This week we are challenging you to use  all and only the colors from the Close to My Heart Florence paper pack.  These colors are:  Flaxen, Peacock, Poppy, Ruby, Saffron and Whisper.  Of course, if you don't have these exact colors yet you can substitute similar colors so you can still join in the fun.

My card features a hippo ballerina from Safari Ballet stamp set.

     Ruby CS

My card layout was inspired by Sketch Saturday # 424:

I am also entering this card into this week's Between the Folds Florence challenge, Heart 2 Heart Florence challenge and the Stampin' Royalty's Anything Goes challenge.

What a cute card! Love the pops of red on the hippo and the glitter is a nice touch as well.

Adorable card and love that PML card, which I never think to use. I have that stamp but haven't used it's so cute and you've inspired me to pull that stamp set out.

Super cute! Who doesn't love hippos?!! They are one of my favorite images. I really ove all the glitter on her tutu as well. Thanks so much for sharing your card with us over on the Sketch Saturday site.

That hippo is just so "hip" (sorry, that was really bad... but I couldn't resist). She is cute, though, and the extra shimmer on her tutu, nails and bow add that extra touch. Love the use of the flowered pattern from the Florence paper pack - most people completely forget about that piece in there and it is one of my favourites! Thanks for joining us at Heart 2 Heart - always love to see your projects!

She's "tutu" adorable! I love the use of rich colors for a birthday card!

Perfection! Great choices in your patterned paper, zip strip, and image with this sketch as it really puts the spotlight on the charmingly whimsical hippo. Thanks for sharing with us at Between The Folds!
