Thanks with a Flip Fold

The new biweekly Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #429 is up on the challenge blog beginning today, Friday, January 29, and will end on Thursday evening, February 11, 2021. It's easy to play along - just pick three colors from the color board below. You may use more than three colors but no colors are permitted unless they appear on the board. Notice that you may also use black, white, neutrals plus gold and silver metallics so there is the opportunity to create something colorful. My card was created with pastel colors of Ballerina, Mint, and French Vanilla.

Using an old favorite die set, this card was made from die-cut paper elements. Once the elements were cut and assembled, I added a die-cut sentiment on the flip-it circle along with tiny flowers and pearls. Wanting to dress up the card a little I added an ivory ribbon simply tied in a square knot. I will be using this card right away and adhered a panel of vanilla cardstock to the back of the card to write a personal message. 

I hope you'll visit the Color Dare #429 Blog and give our challenge a try!
