Make Waves Paper Meets Sunny Thoughts Stamp for Color Dare #280

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog post!  This week we are challenging you to combine these three Close to My Heart colors:  Pixie, Pansy and Emerald.  Black and White Daisy are always FREE to use in our challenges but please do not add any new colors.  Of course, if you don't have these exclusive Close to My Heart colors yet you may substitute similar colors so you can still join in on the fun!

Months ago I seriously considered purchasing a Quilt Block Die from Stampin' Up.  It was pricey and I reluctantly talked myself out of the purchase.  Quilting is also another craft passion of mine so I decided that I could create a similar look in Cricut's Design Space and I did just that.  

Although it is not quite "perfect" I am very pleased with how it came out with these fabulous bright and cheery colors.  Now that I have it in my Design Space files I can replicate, resize and reproduce it in numerous color schemes. What fun I'm going to have with this file*!

      White Daisy CS
      Pixie CS
      Pansy CS
      Make Waves Paper (purple and green prints)
      Sunny Thoughts (sentiment and tiny pink flower)

I love how you created your own pattern and used other "tools" Very clever. I would love to get the file for the quilt pattern. I don't have the patience to make a real quilt, but they are always very beautiful. Thanks for sharing
