Color Dare #268 Meets Try Stampin' on Tuesday #345

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog post!  This week we are challenging you to use the following exclusive Close to My Heart colors:  Fern, New England Ivy, Almond, Cranberry, White Daisy with optional gold.  Of course, if you don't have these Close to My Heart colors yet, you may substitute similar colors so you can still join in on the fun.

The base panel is Almond, the striped paper is from Adventure Fundamentals, the horizontal stripe is New England Ivy with Fern on top.  The wreath was stamped in New England Ivy ink with Fern sponged over it.  The sentiment is from the Fairytale Birthday stamp set inked in Cranberry.  I did choose to use "optional gold".  Here is a closeup so you can see how I used the Metallic Gold marker to color the leaves.

My card design was inspired by this Try Stampin' on Tuesday #345 sketch:
