Festive Congrats!

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #363 is up and running today, Friday, October 4, through Thursday, October 17, 2019. Think about playing Tic-Tac-Toe with us! Using the grid below, pick three colors in a row and use them on a paper crafted project. Here's the catch - select your three-in-a-row, then add any other colors from the grid to finish your project. Do not add colors that are not on the color board. You may use black and white as necessary to develop your creation.

I selected Row 2 using papers to represent Pewter, Silver and Ballerina, then adding Julep and Lemonade plus white.

Using dies, I cut the papers for the scalloped effect as well as the sentiment and its shadow. I adhered the scalloped pieces to a silver card base along with some craft foam for dimension, finishing with a panel of green glitter paper beneath the silver scallops. The sentiment and its shadow were adhered using foam tape. Sequins were added to give the card a festive feel. The inside was lined with a panel of white cardstock and strips of Pewter and Ballerina paper.

If you've never played at our biweekly challenge, we welcome you to give it a try by visiting our Color Dare Blog.

  1. Love the scalloped pieces slightly offset - terrific design. The colours you chose are laid out in a way that showcases each of them.

  2. This is my favorite for this challenge. I’m into CAS usually but this is amazing. Your way of using the colors is terrific!

  3. Pretty fall colors! Love the touch of sparkle too! :)

  4. Oh how fun are those scalloped layers! Very clever in design and use of color.

  5. Melanie, What a great way to use the colors by putting them into the various layers! Love the sparkle.
