Happy Birthday to Joyce

Color My Heart Color Dare Biweekly Challenge #435 is open as of Friday, March 12, ending on Thursday evening, March 25, 2021. We're giving St. Patrick's Day a nod by challenging you to create a project using shades of green with one color of your choice. Black, white, most neutrals, metallics, and glitter are free to use. You are not required to create something specific for St. Patrick's Day. I used various greens with pink as my color of choice, adding metallic gold.

I have a friend, Joyce, whose birthday is February 29th. Except for Leap Years, she celebrates on the 28th. This is for her. I saw a fun fold on YouTube that was new to me and liked the card but the presentation did not include measurements for the specific card so I just guessed my way through so the card would fold into A2 size. Once the card base was folded and decorated with various patterns in green, three flowers were stamped, colored, and fussy-cut. The foliage was die-cut from gold foiled cardstock and gold-toned stick-on gems were added for the floral centers. I elected not to use a sentiment on the front, but stamped one inside and decorated the inside with more gold foiled foliage.

We hope you'll join us for this biweekly challenge by visiting the
