Color Dare #296 Meets Freshly Made Sketch #340

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog post!  This fortnight we are challenging you to combine the following Close to My Heart colors:  Toffee, Pomegranate and Juniper with an option of Gold.  Of course if you don't have these CTMH colors you may substitute similar colors so you can still play along.  Black and White are always free to use but please do not add additional colors.  Our challenge will be open until June 21 so you have almost 2 weeks to link up your creation for our challenge.

     Pomegranate CS
     Toffee CS
     White Daisy CS
     Whimsy Fundamentals Paper
     Pomegranate Ink
     Juniper Ink
     Versamark Ink
     Shell Sentiments stamps
     Polysparkle Tinsel Embossing Powder (retired                     CTMH)
     3D Foam Tape

Here's another view so you can see how sparkly the Polysparkle Tinsel Embossing Powder is.  Although Close to My Heart no longer carries this embossing powder I think you could make your own by combining clear embossing powder and glitter.

Here is the Color Dare graphic--just click on it to get to the challenge link and see what the rest of the fabulous Design Team has to inspire you.

My card layout was inspired by this wonderful Freshly Made Sketch #340:

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
     Aud Sentiments Challenge--Anything Goes with a               Sentiment
     Through the Purple Haze--At the Beach

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

  1. Fabulous card, Marie! It’s very bold without being overwhelming, which is why it caught my eye. That ultra shimmery seashell is awesome! I’ll have to experiment with the clear embossing powder and some prisma glitter.

  2. Love your card, Marie. You are the Queen of the CAS style card!!! I love all the sparkle on the shell and the way you used the colors. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Great picture of the close-up with the shimmer on shell. Excellent take on the sketch, as you always do. This meets our Challenge 2 and Three Amigos if you want to share.

  4. lovely card .Thank you for joining us at Aud Sentiments challenge good luck Ginny ♥
