Hello Lovely Birthday Card for Color Dare #231

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 "Hello Lovely" paper pack.  (Well if 8 colors is too much of a challenge just use as many as you can.)  Of course if you don't have these exclusive CTMH colors yet just substitute similar colors so you can still join in on the fun.

The focal image flowers were fussy cut from one of the Hello Lovely patterned papers.  Here is a closeup so you can see how sparkly the Clear Shimmer Brush really is:

     Hello Lovely paper
     Colonial White CS
     Sea Glass CS
     Sorbet CS
     Sorbet Ink
     Fern CS
     Whisper patterned paper from Sugar Rush paper 
     3D Foam Tape
     Clear Shimmer Brush
     White and Gold Ribbon
     Happy Birthday stamp from the Artfully Sent                      Cricut collection

Here is the Color Dare challenge graphic.  Just click on it to be inspired by what the rest of the Design Team has to share.  We hope you'll be able to find the time to play along with.

Marie, this is so pretty with the glimmer on the flowers, it makes it look quite dimensional as well. And nice interpretation of the sketch...I have to look at that one again.

I love this take on the color sketch and the design is top notch too! You did some great fussy cutting of those flowers and it all works together beautifully!

Cat Nowak said...

Great idea to use the flowers from the papers. I like your take on the sketch.

I love it! I love the fussy cutting, not always fun but sometimes (like this time) so worth it for a great card! Thanks for playing along with Between the Folds (BTF)!

This such a lovely and classically elegant card, Marie! I love everything about it, especially the fussy cut flowers combined with the shimmer brush. Thanks for sharing with us at Between The Folds.
